Another refugee from Bnet arriving

Post by mlarue75 on Mon Jul 13, 2009 8:59 am

Hi everyone. My name is Mary and the 75 refers to the year I graduated from college...so I've been on the planet for awhile. I find myself growing happier as I get older, contrary to what they told me when I was a kid. CoffeeCup Pretty cool that it turned out that way!

I am a recent convert to Judaism and my family is still scratching their heads about it. I'm a second-career language teacher about to start my 2nd year of employment, and I am enjoying my first summer without having to hunt for a job. That's 8.5 weeks of freedom!

I heard about this website from MaineCaptain, one of my old Bnet friends. I see some of my other friends and acquaintances from there so this will be fun!

Happy summer!

Hi Mary! (Shalom!) Welcome! I'm Joseph/TED. Nice to meet you! Don't let my seeming niceties fool you, I'm the resident smartass. Wink

You can frequently find me hiding from MaineCaptain, who spends much of her day chasing me with a broom. Laughing

Hi, Mary! I'm Tina. Not really a refugee from bnet, yet. I have too much fun pushing buttons on some people over there.

I'm in and out. Pay no mind to TED. Get a broom and he'll be quiet. lol!
He thinks he's a tough one... but he's really just a big ol' pussycat.

Another escapee! Excellent. Always nice to see the Magen David hanging next to Mjolnir, it brightens up the place otherwise overwhelmed with pentacles and crosses.

Welcome Mary. Pay no mind to TED. He's a far cry form the resident smart ass. I was a senior member of the Jerk Club, and a confirmed Marxist, (Harpo I think or maybe Chico, I'm not really sure Cool ) on the old site. TED is simply trying to emulate me. Wink

You'll find these new digs a little different than what you grew accustomed to on B'Net. We try to be provocative without being provoking. Cruise about and find yourself a niche. Beer

Surprised Oh, and Fang, aka Willowcreek70633, aka Dee sez welcome too.

Hysterical Hysterical
I'm talking to Mary here! Mary? Shalom, I hope you enjoy yourself here at YOUR spirituality! I found it to be a really great place to interact openly! The good intentions are heartfelt & true. The throwed off intentions (the rowdy bunch, has that area all sewed up). We can be a strange bunch, but we are not a hurtful, riot waiting to happen. Hope to be friends soon!

Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes To the above poster, (forgot his name)....here's your sign! ImWithStupid

Welcome Mary from another b-netter. T.E.D. is just a overgrown pussycat. John's just a old grumpy Cajun. You'll find this to be a more civil & respectful place.

Hello to all! I have been traveling and just got some time to check in. Glad to see some (alleged) expertise in brooms! I, on the other hand, am much better at snaping - no, I mean sniping - from the stands.

I am not sure what spirituality IS per se. Religion without church? Individual religious practice not necessarily sanctioned by religious authorities? Never could figure it out, but I've always been interested. I like religion fine as long as it doesn't bash people over the head and provides a choir for me to sing in.

Hm...OK, this implies that people who have been burned by religion are "spiritual-not-religious." Is it always one or the other? Can't you be both? Do you have to hate organized religion to be spiritual? I was brought up liberal Christian and we didn't believe in hell. Jews don't either, for that matter.

I liked my old church, but I couldn't swallow all that stuff about Jesus and finally converted. I knew I was in the right place when I found the Jewish potlucks were better than the Episcopalian ones!

Depends on what you mean when you say "organized religion." To monotheists, it seems to mean one thing, to us polytheists, something completely different.
