So long, farewell, auf Wiederseh'n, good night
I have just "left" christianity
. After a particularly hate-filled comment aimed at me from some fool or another, I realized that I get no enjoyment from the community. I don't post there; I only stayed to comment (occasionally) -- mostly as an older guide to the newbies who joined up thinking that they might find counsel there.
What they get, of course, is a food fight. And I believe that "God has called us to peace," so I have left.
I don't know where to go from here. methodism
is about as bad as christianity
(though with less traffic), but I refuse to be run out of my own tradition's community. I looked at ljchristians
, but they seem to be mostly on the evangelical side of things, and while I get along fine with those folks, I'm not native to that subculture. Most of the Christian- or Church-oriented communities seem to have particular axes to grind or a particular cast to the membership that doesn't fit me.
Well, I'll think on it a bit.
Meanwhile, this is the first time I've ever left a community. It feels weird, like I gave up on something or should have done something. But I don't know what I could have done, except a formal leave-taking, and that's sooooo drama-queenish.
