Go shoot some bball outside of the school.

I hate it, and as soon as I go to college I'm stopping. After college, I might start up again. But not while I'm there.

- Everyone discusses FYM going to shit due to posters like Sting2 and AchtungBono; you question why the two haven't hooked up.

There are a few FYM posters that piss me off: Sting2, AchtungBono, Diamond, and, I think most of all, Indy500. 2816 can be annoying but is semi-reasonable compared to the other four.

FYM conservatives are really a piss-poor representation of the party.

I like that I've been to church on a Sunday morning three times in my whole life.

Twice, due to unfortunate circumstances, to a Southern Baptist church in Tennessee. :shudder:

Once to a mundane non-denominational Protestant church in Queensland. :snooze:

you might actually find you like the campus ministry. i hated church growing up because people were so fucking shallow, and only cared about appearance. the churches here really made me feel isolated. however the campus ministry did provide a really nice community, and it made me start going to church again.

i hear the university i work for has a good campus ministry. but i haven't gone. i've been so shook up i don't know what to believe anymore. so...for now, no church for me.

i do occasionally visit my franciscan friends. i miss that community. everytime i go there i feel embraced and connected to them by a force bigger than myself. it's hard to find something like that in these suburbs though.

I only go to church for community, not because of my beliefs. My belief in most religious stances is waning.

yeah and it's a shame. financeguy does sometimes offer an interesting conservative perspective. i wasn't in fym during the days of nbcrusader, so i missed out on that, but i heard he was great too.

2816 has grown a lot since he started posting.

2861 actually scares me because isn't he actually meant to be young? I first thought his screen name was his birthday, 2 August/8 February 1961. Now, it's one thing to be that unfortunately conservative if you're 46, stuck in a rut with a miserable middle class job. But I've gotten the implication he's somewhere around my age and at university, and that's just sad.

Though, full credit to him, he doesn't descend into AchtungBono's stupidity and when I called him a far right extremist, we were able to have a reasonable discussion about it.

Financeguy, being a non-American conservative, has pretty reasonable stances on most everything, aside from gay marriage.

He's 19 or 20.

AchtungBono isn't American, and doesn't understand the concept of our country, in all honesty.

yeah...that's the only stance i think that i just don't understand of his. perhaps it is just my ignorance though? i thought that anyone opposing gay marriage was doing so because of a religious stance. fg is athiest i think...so i just don't get it.
