Ex-Christians

Saved from being saved

Troll

Sun Jun 29, 2014, 2:08 AM by Mephistophilez:iconmephistophilez:


To any recent commenters or others who were bombarded by a particularly annoying little troll, I would like to apologize. This person left a typical troll comment on the front page about "bitches" deserving hell. Normally pointing them to our guidelines or blocking them sends the signal, but I guess this one didn't get it through their thick skull. They literally left the same rambling preachy comment to every single recent commenter on this group and atheist-alliance. Not only is this spam but it's harassment, plain and simple (and seems to be block evasion). They have been reported, but please feel free to report them yourself if you received one of these comments. And I recommend simply blocking them and hiding their comment, since they seem to just be out for attention and to whine about what they don't like. They shall go nameless here as I don't intend to give them the attention they crave, but rather just want to say sorry for the shit they've caused. I can only block them from the group, not individual profiles. This is intended to be a safe place, but I guess some don't get that or don't care, and will try to find a way to spread their filth anyways.

But they do offer a glimpse at exactly what it is this group is against. Here is a person who literally wants people they don't even know to burn in hell for eternity. They literally asked god to condemn those they don't like. Hell is easily the most horrific and disgusting bit of fiction ever invented, but how much more disgusting to see someone wishing other people to go there. Then they try to sell you their bullshit version of god? Apparently they've never worked in retail, probably not the best way to hook people on a product by insulting them and wishing them unending torture. And that's the sad thing, these people don't even know what they believe, they've just been indoctrinated to believe it, never bothered to question it, yet expect you to swallow it blindly. And their only means for trying to do so seems to bully, harass, and belittle.

It's rather telling to me that some of the worst people I've met and the worst things I see being said in the public sphere (or in my personal life) come from people who call themselves Christians. Often they say the most vile things as they're preaching about god. These aren't some fringe minority, they represent a vast part of the religion, if not the majority. The hate, intolerance, bigotry, hypocrisy, close-mindedness, and hostility towards anyone outside their little chosen group is what Christianity is associated with to those outside that religion, it represents the entire religion in the eyes of many, and seeing that sort of behavior is what drove many here away from it. So take note trolls, your unwanted comments are the type of thing that woke us up to begin with, and only drive us more to combat everything you stand for, so if you had your head on straight you might reconsider before saying something. But I guess they are what they are because they don't think things through.

Anyways, there are better journals than this in the works. Sorry for the lack of activity recently, life gets in the way of writing lately, but we're still around and not going away.

Oh and we're now over 300 members! Thank you to everyone who has joined and watched :)

Hope you all will and are enjoying your summer.

Hi everyone. I hope this isn't spam, because I really do mean this...

Thanks so much to everyone in this group. Looking at submissions and what not has really helped me with deconverting. I was not the most active here, but the fact that this group exists made me feel like my feelings of doubt were valid. I'm a lot happier now with not being a devout Christian (now a deist) So thanks everyone >w<

(Meant to post this a while ago hehehe)

A former Catholic, turned away from the faith upon learning more about Reason and Science, I essentially grew out of it. Much of Christianity is just nonsensical to me now, despite being raised as such. Great group BTW! :D

I have a quandary:  Where is the line between "Asking the Hard Questions" to the Theists/Christians (example: The prevailing X-tain Thought that Lucifer became Satan because he rebelled against God.  Question: How can any being rebel against an entity that is All-Powerful?) and being a "Troll" or an "Ass". 

Also, have any Christians (or Muslims) blocked you for "Blasphemy" or for poking holes in the faith?

I once saw a stamp that says that there are no such things as ex-Christians. If that's the case, then this group doesn't exist! :lol:

Hey. Does any know what you should do if your parent threatens to throw you out if you refuse to go to church?
I really need advice. (BTW... I'm 13 not 18 or anything so I can't get a job)

Thank you for adding my journal into your gallery. :) And also thank you for running this group. First time I come across it, but it looks professional and understanding -- not bashing or ranting. A support group like this is just what some people need to dare to "come out" and accept their atheist beliefs. Keep up the good job!

I saw this in a discussion online.  I'm not sure if the person who said it was quoting someone else.

Hello! I'd like to ask for some advice. I'm not religious but I have two Christian friends who like to get all preachy with me. What is a good way to tell them to lay off trying to teach me or tell me what to do in accordance to their religion?

This has become a problem lately and I want to tell them that I'm not interested in that type of "coping" without sounding rude.
