it wasnt a bad experience...it didnt have any affect on my lifestyle. the interactions between my ex and her mother were otherwise 'normal' so i had no horse in the race, so to speak...but if the mother had acted towards her the way she was acting towards the excommunicated sister it would have been a whole different story.Houseman said:Regardless, thanks for sharing. I'm sorry that you have had a bad experience with us, but I'd be happy to answer any questions you might have.
as far as im concerned, they can practice, preach, and prosthelytize however they want...as long as it doesnt affect me.
i can understand why some countries ban them...but even the jews let their own version of fanatical fruitbowls abstain from military service. (slightly off topic...the 'orthodox' juden in judenland who i have personally spoken with who dont want to join the military or get jobs are nothing more than the juden version of lazy self-aggrandizing snowflakes.)
as far as questions...my ex answered pretty much anything i needed to know. she was even practicing it for awhile years and years before i met her, although based on her 'lifestyle choices' (and her mothers prior to becoming one) it struck me as a bit hypocritical...both on the personal level and the religion as a whole. a religion that is supposedly so god-centric and biblically emphasized has absolutely fuck-all in terms of compassion and understanding. even the bible has more than sufficient references to justify serving in the military AND killing. sixth commandment: 'though shalt not xxxxxx' doesnt prohibit justifiable homicide, which is what warfare is.
