Wimbledon Station Bible Panic


Sydney Fox

Recommended Posts

I just saw this story on the BBC news site. I think I would have evacuated too if some creepy guy started reading the bible and talking about death. There's been so many terrorist attacks in Britain this year, no wonder the passengers weren't taking any chances. Luckily no one was hurt.

It generally takes a lot to freak out Londoners, especially when commuting by public transport (source: I was born and grew up in London, and have traveled a lot through the city by public transport even after I moved away).  Someone trying to proselytise would by met by people shuffling away, moving into the next carriage etc (much as if they were being asked for cash). 

And SouthWest trains have such a bad service that rush-hour commuters willingly stopping one of their trains is unthinkable, unless they were genuinely scared for their lives.  I can pretty much guarantee this isn't a case of 'snowflakes' unwilling to hear the word of God - I would bet serious cash he was legitimately scary, and I'd love to see the in-train CCTV of what happened.

Things like this make me feel like more of a Hobbit. I want to stay in my quiet hobbit hole and eat second breakfast in peace and imagined safety.

I think after everything that's happened in London that would've made me evacuate the train car too. If it had happened here in Orlando I would have gotten the hell out of dodge. You live on a hair trigger after something happens. Now I'd leave no matter where I was and I'd want to drag everybody with me.

*shudders* creepy.

It might have made me simply evacuate, in general.  

Anything like this is scary these days. We all know that there is no longer such a thing as a safe place.

      So angry right now.  If I could return to Luxembourg tomorrow and renounce my citizenship in this stinking shitpile of a country I would.

      My niece is going to be a seat filler at this year's Academy Awards.  Seat fillers are asked to wear tuxedos regardless of sex/gender.  If you see a pretty young woman with very curly hair, it could be my niece.

      Yeah, that's me.  Though to be fair I am trying to learn Italian and Spanish.

      It’s not supposed to be mosquito season right now but I still appear to have been bitten twice on the side of my foot. Bastards. I know I shouldn’t scratch but it’s so tempting… 😑

      Hello,
       
      I'm brand new to this forum. It was suggested to me by former and outspoken Remnant Fellowship member (Natasha Pavlovich) that I join this forum and put out here what I do. She also warned me that no one on here trusts, or trusts easily, and that I'd likely be assumed to be a Remnant plant or spy until vetted and verified as not that. Fair enough. 
      In short, and in truth, I'm a psychotherapist with 25 yrs experience in Franklin TN (less than three miles from RF incidentally) with a special interest in working with people formerly associated with cults, cult-like or any and all high control intitutions. I'm especially interested in working with those desiring not only deconstruct, recover and learn to thrive post-indoctrination, but those desiring to recapture or cultivate an authentic sense of theology without walls, or spirituality with borders. 
      To date, I've worked with former Amish, Mennonite, LDS/FLDS, FOG, and a those representing a whole slew of evangelical, fire and brimstone fear/shame/guilt-inducing institutions.
      I am especially interested in working with former Remnant Fellowship and Scientology members. I view RF as basically Scientology without the budget. 
      I'll leave it there. Much more can be gleaned about me through my website: therapyoutsidethebox.com or IG: @ therapyoutsidethebox
       
      Peace,
       
      Chris Hancock, LCSW
      Franklin, TN

      I have a friend with untreated autism and ADHD. I've tried so fucking hard to help. He refuses. It's a mess. I'm really really tired.
