Mowing down psychological tall grass and tangled weeds; clearing the field and planting new seeds. Thoughts lifted from my angry days, when someone asks my opinion and then denies it.

If we all had the same thoughts, there would be no need for democracy. Cogito Ergo Sum.


If you care to understand my motivations on this

I'm fairly certain that if any of the regulars or admins at Street Prophets have found this blog that it will only add to their perception that those atheists are just out to piss in the punch bowl and start a fight.

I've given up on trying to change anyone's perceptions. I still ask people to read my first diary and the one I wrote after Netroots '09 and ask how the same guy came to be someone they had to excommunicate by January. I wasn't home alone in the closet reading comic books all that time, I was talking to them.

And now that we're roughly two months past the grenade going off, I've come to one conclusion about it all.

Out of sight out of mind works well for the one with their eyes closed or their back turned. It changes nothing however, about whatever it is that is no longer being seen.

And ultimately, what makes me shivver - literally shivver - is that if you follow the arguments of JCHFleetguy and even the logic of those who gathered in whatever conference took place to lock me out (which I understand involved Pastor Dan) what it means is

...if it all happened again tomorrow and they found another like me, they'd play it out the same way again.
