Church, state and Governor Rick Perry

So Perry is calling on all Americans to pray and fast, "just like Jesus did". Is that because only if you believe in Jesus as Messiah can you be a real American?

Do these people ever listen to themselves? The arrogance burns. .

Austin, didn't you get the memo? this is a CHRISTIAN country, founded on CHRISTIAN principles. The logical extension of that is only (certain kinds of ) Christians are real 'murricans. Like John Wayne, from Waterloo Iowa.

I looked up fasting for hypoglycemics and it is obviously not advised. SO WHAT THEN? Even my dad who is really conservative, very Republican dislikes our governor as much as he dislikes the president.

Rick Perry is a piece of work who has never held a "real" job. He has an ego the size of our great state which does not serve him well. He is pandering to certain extremists types in his efforts to run for President.

The only thing he has done which I liked was when he attempted to mandate the HPV vaccine, which was new then, for students. TX leads the rate in cervical cancer. Then the even stupider state legislators threw a fit and did all their arguments like "the HPV vaccines will mean girls have sex" and my favorite, "if girls have sex, then they deserve to die of cancer". They were able to block it for a year or so but now it is required. I've heard that Rick Perry has ties to Merck or whoever the pharm lab is that produces it, but I didn't really care if he owned the company. I think it is a great thing to be able to prevent the virus that causes some types of cancer.

But I digress. I think mostly that Rick Perry is awful. There may be a youtube video of when he and some friend was stopped by DPS. He was totally disrespectful and kept saying "why don't you let us get on down the road'. Like I said,quite an ego.

      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.

      I'm a huge baseball fan. This year, MLB TV showed Liga Dominicana games in December and January and it was a fucking revelation. The players had so much fire and joy. The announcers with their charming DR accents were a blast, though I could hardly keep up with the Spanish. DItto the Serie del Caribe. As a White Sox fan, the MLB season is going to suffer by comparison. Te amo los Tigres del Licey!
