How can you live when you have people in your life who want to shoot you for living?

Get a hobby. Get drunk. Get blitz'd off your ass, wasted to fucking shit on anything that you can. Get laid. Get a one night stand. Get a one week stand. Go paragliding. Scuba diving.  Whatever the fuck floats your boat.

None of that stuff sounds all that fun to me (except the getting laid part...but I get that as often as I like since I'm married)  Since you seem so concerned with my quality of life, I assure you that I have several hobbies that I enjoy regularly.

For fucks sake, live!

That what I am trying to do.  First step is to eliminate people whose presence is a drain on me.

InTheLight,

I think that you may have gotten the wrong impression about FDR based on your belief that Stefan believes:

Quote
Hate your entire family or you're a bad, misled person.

Which is not what it is about at all.

Is there something wrong with loving people for their virtues. rather than accidents of birth?  Personally, unconditionally loving your parents feels a little like nationalism or jingoism.  Y'know, "my family, right or wrong"?

What do you mean by "tolerance"?

If you mean, "allow someone to believe what they like without threatening them with violence" then I already show tolerance.

If you mean, "value people who believe that violence should be done to you the same as people who don't" then you clearly don't value yourself very much.  I don't "love everyone equally".  I love people who deserve to be loved.  In my view, you don't deserve to be loved if you think violence should be done to me.  I guess I'm just weird that way though, but when people think I should be in prison, it makes me not as eager to spend time with that person.

As far as acceptance, I have that.  I have accepted that she believes as she does, and have thus moved on with my life.

If she's so wonderful, why don't YOU go visit her?

How about acceptance and tolerance of peoples beliefs regardless of what they are?

What the Brit said.

That's a good way to put it.

I tolerate people who don't want to hurt me.

That is when you have to smoke lots of weed to get high.

If someone tells you they want to see you subjected to institutionalized rape or murder, I would say simply not hanging out with them is under reacting.

The day I hear someone say exactly those words, I'll agree with you. Maybe it's just me, but no-one ever has.

But you don't understand. Nobody ever actually SAYS that. But if they don't bark about liberty to strangers from their porches, if they haven't de-FOOed, if they use the word "Jesus" in any sense that isn't a curse word... they're THINKING it.

Don't other words mean exactly the same thing as those words?  Isn't there more than one way to get that exact same message across?

I mean that the idea that you have differing opinions on, say, politics should not be a factor in a relationship with someone.

Oh, I see.

So for example, a gay person shouldn't decide to not be friends with someone just because that person thinks that gays are an abomination against God?

A black person, I suppose, shouldn't decide not to be friends with someone who thinks that slavery should be re-instituted against black people.  That too is nothing more than a difference of opinion.

No, I compared myself with the black person who decides that someone's racist attitude is a justification for not spending time with that person.

Is there anything unreasonable about that?

Of course, if my mom thinks that my views are abominable, then she is more than justified in dissociating from me too.
