Hello :)
« on: April 01, 2017, 03:15:02 AM »
Hi!
I'm a non-believing female senior citizen who happens to live within a stone's throw of Liberty University.  Everyone in this city seems to speak a foreign language - Christianese.   This forum looks quite engaging, and I'm happy to have been approved to post here.

Yes, welcome, Jariel.

We do our best to keep to rationalese but, I fear, do tend to drift into sillyese at times of fun.

hi jariel, and welcome to our forum. 8)
I'm truly sorry, but I can't keep explaining this simple thing to you over and over again hoping that you'll finally understand something so simple and obvious.
I'm not the "Dumb-Ass Whisperer".

I really, really hate anti-semantics.

I am way late at offering my welcome but here it is.....Welcome


Egad Jariel you live near Liberty Univ. ? Sheesh! That is cruel and unusual punishment.

We hope that you will participate in the forum, you will find some pretty shrewd and friendly people here.  Sometimes we say naughty words but we seldom if ever direct any such language toward our members.
