We promote rational individualism, and are opposed to those who assert incoherent supernatural claims.
"Do former Christian ever miss Christianity?"Not really- while it was nice to have a doctrinal position that seemed absolutely certain at the time, my investigation of atheology has shown that to be just so much straw.At times I miss the social aspect of it- it's a wondrous thing, walking into a church and knowing that even as a total stranger you'll be welcomed warmly as a long-time friend, simply because you share (or claim to share) their same opinions. Of course, I've found the same phenomenon at the Church of Freethought, so this is likely a sociological phenomenon, and not a theological phenomenon.
Zach -- it's interesting, maybe I'm anti-social, but I always found church to be an uncomfortable experience... everyone always seemed way to dreamy and content for me... kind of like walking into a Grateful Dead concert, only minus the drugs to explain it.-olly
I have found that you are indeed welcomed--for a proce. You are in fact not loved unconditionally. You are welcome as long as you buy what they are selling, because they need fresh meet. I have always found Christian warmth to be solicitous.At least, that is my experience. And that is also what I was taught.
