Great! The ultimate deflection! No one outside the Group could possibly understand (cuz they didn't have special Awareness) and so nothing any non-seedling had to say had merit. Same w/ Straight, right down to the letter. Moreover, no talking behind backs or out in group, no cliquing (unautorized friendship or friendship w/ an unauthorised basis) and the confidentiality rule meant that no one inside the group who voiced unauthorized views had any merit either.

If I wasn't there, then why does anything I have to say bother you so much?

Religion is based . . . mainly on fear . . . fear of the mysterious, fear of defeat, fear of death. Fear is the parent of cruelty, and therefore it is no wonder if cruelty and religion have gone hand in hand. . . . My own view on religion is that of Lucretius. I regard it as a disease born of fear and as a source of untold misery to the human race.
--Bertrand Russell, British philosopher, educator, mathemetician, and social critic

Yes, and I often do. When I want such a conversation, I wouldn't walk up to a devout Christian and start going on about religion or to a Democrat or Republican and breach the topic of politics. If you really want a friendly, light and non-contentious conversation, you don't come onto a forum expressely about the Program and tell people to shut the fuck up about the Program.

And Terry, you're psychonalysis of me is quite lame. You're not convincing anyone but yourself and other devout Seedlings.

ginger, i take the comments at face value. yes she's not wanting "negative" comments in here, but there's a big difference in writing something politely and telling someone to shut the fuck up.

if i read every post on the board this way, and took them up several notches, well i wonder what words i would attach when people really do get verbal with one another.

Antigen - No I would never say "to shut the ____ up" and I wasn't even thinking it believe it or not.  I respect what you say and didn't tell you to stop saying it.  I have read alot of what you have said throughout these posts and I have a respect for your passion to ensure that these types of programs stop.  I was just hoping for a section (a small one) for friends to be able to reconnect. I don't share all your memories so I don't feel the same as you, that's what makes the world go round.  I am a pretty mellow person that likes things calm and friendly!

Jeez, I don't think we have to feel sorry for one another, no matter which side of the issue you find yourself.

Maggie, you seem like such a charming person in your posts and your memories of positive times are very evocative of the good times I had too...but that is only one part of the story for me.

I don't feel sorry for anyone who is actively posting here, presenting a viewpoint and then responding to others. I think it is healthy and good for all of us.

Sigh..you guys are misrepresenting what ginger was pointing out.

Somewhere in the thread someone pointed out that the thread was designed for positive seed comments only.  Maggies opening round pretty much sums that up, and Ginger Correctly quotes it.

That is why, when I started the friends thread, I said No seed commentary, period.

There will be no exclusively  pro or seed threads coming our way...

sorry folks...but that just grates my ass. This forum was created as a place where everyone would get a voice on this subject, and  I won't have it any other way. All comments  on the seed are subject to having a pin firmly inserted in your balloon.

Well yes. And "Herr Goldstien, I have orders to escort you to the train, for your own protection." has a far softer tone to it than a loud pounding on the door in the night, followed by a search and a ride in a Black Maria. But the end result is the same.

Thats a beautiful reply and in the proper context which doesn't seem to be here it is valid. But then I don't really want you to be quiet anyway nor do I really wish to provoke you too much. :wink: But you know that already.
