Puddington and others, it's really telling how many of the people populating this forum have been or are currently involved in psychotherapy. As it happens, my therapist, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, happens to be a believing and practicing Jew. We'll see how she handles any reactions I have to the coming High Holidays, etc. I think she thinks all Christians are batshit.
If this were truly a voluntary association, I don't believe so many people would suffer this much trauma. And I haven't seen the crap that many of you who were trapped in various work camps in the Los Angeles area have seen. I can't even imagine, because I couldn't have handled it.
The term I began using in my conversations with my family to address "the authorities" who would tell us that we're "wrong," "need to repent," and in my case always, "you are selfish," is SPIRITUAL BULLYING!
I will never be spiritually bullied again. The same part of me that will not be shushed by a man or physically manhandled will NOT be told again that I need to repent or get "with the program,"
