Welcome, can I get you a table?

Welcome to yet one more blog taking more space in the tubes filled with cats.  You can find out more about me, your host, in the Boss’s Office tab.    I’ll be posting about food, drink, various issues that I find interesting and of course, the occasional indulgence in schadenfreude.  Subjects will be loosely gathered under various headings.   I’m going to shoot for updates once or twice a week.  Might be more, might be less.

My opinions are strong, like my drinks.  Comments are welcome, even opposing comments.  Just be thoughtful.  Any idiocy that is written will be removed, no tears shed and any claims of martyrdom laughed at.

  1. Dear clubschadenfreude
    While you and I have very different points of view, we are both bloggers, and after your two comments on my blog, I was pleased to receive comments from you as an atheist, as it was another atheist commenting on Christian YouTube videos that lead me back to the Christian faith
    Which what I was reoffering to when I wrote about God using atheists without them knowing

    I won’t bore you with further details about my journey away from the faith.
    I will just offer access to myself as a friend if you are ever in need of someone who will listen
    Who will Not preach rather I will be open to you to vent your strong options, or as someone who is willing to discuss with you about things your fans may not
    But with No religion or Biblical subjects

    My mobile number is 07598174363 should you want to take me up with this offer of friendship
    My friendship offer is just from one blogger to another

    1. You can call me Vel, which you would have noted if you had cared to learn more about me by reading the boss’s office information. That lack of curiosity seems to bely your claims of friendship. it is rather creepy that you think I’d call some random Christian on the internet. If you wish to chat, we can do that here.

      I suspect your claim about an atheist leading you back to Christianity is not true. Humans often return to what they find familiar, often in middle age since they want their foot in those pearly gates.

      As I noted on my comment on your website, christians can’t agree on what this god considers sin, what this god considers moral, if this god wants free will, etc. You still seem to need to pretend that I and others agree with you when we do not, and that we are somehow toys for your god. No evidence of any of that. We certainly do not “know” that your version of a religion is the truth. I can definitely understand why you would not want to talk about religion or your bible.

      It seems you think it is important to me to have you as a friend, perhaps pretending that an atheist couldn’t possibly have any. I have no need for someone who thinks I deserve death and worse. That isn’t what a friend would think. You have already preached and made false claims; a friend wouldn’t do that either.

      I already “vent” as much as I want, and evidently a couple of hundred people find it interesting enough to subscribe to my blog.

      Two thousand plus years of Christians insisting that “real soon now” everyone will be forced to worship this god. It is a poor joke.

      and as for your most recent post, alas that verse from Luke has been shown again and again to be completely false. If it weren’t, then we’d not have hundreds of schisms in Christianity. “12 “But before all this occurs, they will arrest you and persecute you; they will hand you over to synagogues and prisons, and you will be brought before kings and governors because of my name. 13 This will give you an opportunity to testify. 14 So make up your minds not to prepare your defense in advance; 15 for I will give you words and a wisdom that none of your opponents will be able to withstand or contradict. 16 You will be betrayed even by parents and brothers, by relatives and friends; and they will put some of you to death. 17 You will be hated by all because of my name. 18 But not a hair of your head will perish. 19 By your endurance you will gain your souls.”-Luke 21

      quite a pile of baseless claims and promises.

  2. Thank you for allowing me to call you Vel, which I see you prefer to Andrea, which is my daughter’s middle name

    As to me being a random a Christian on the internet, I am not so random as you picked my blog article at random to comment on

    “I can definitely understand why you would not want to talk I can definitely understand why you would not want to talk about religion or your bible.”

    In reality, I’m perfectly willing to talk about both religion and the bible, this was connected with the phone call and I was saying I would not mention either while on the phone call unless you want to talk about either or both

    “I suspect your claim about an atheist leading you back to Christianity is not true. Humans often return to what they find familiar, often in middle age since they want their foot in those pearly gates!

    Actually, you are partly right it was more than one atheist l commenting on several Christian music videos, the rest is true as because of their comments I was slowly nudged back to Christianity

    “It seems you think it is important to me to have you as a friend, perhaps pretending that an atheist couldn’t possibly have any”

    I have no doubt you have many friends and many fans, I’m also sure none of your friends of your fans would tell you deserve death and worse. As far as I ‘m aware, I didn’t tell you deserved any such fate in any of my comments

    Yes it’s true I do preach in my own small way, normally on my blog, although I have commented on YouTube videos mostly in response to others who are addicted as I was to porn

    1. And the creepy Christian is back. There was nothing random with me responding to a Christian making false claims about atheists. Keywords are such a useful thing.

      You are indeed some random Christian who thinks that someone would want to call him.

      As for your willingness to talk about both religion and the bible, I don’t see much evidence of that, and i have your own words “But with No religion or Biblical subjects” and your false claims and ignorance on your own blog.

      So, we have you making false claims again about your supposed path back to Christianity via an atheist, and now we have you claiming more than one. How unsurprising that the fish story has the fish getting larger.

      Yep, no friend would tell me I deserve death and worse. I do enjoy a Christian who believes that I do deserve death and worse per his religion, now trying to claim that he never ever said such a thing to me directly. it’s quite amusing to see you use the “I was just following orders” excuse.

      Shall we take a look at where your bible says that anyone who doesn’t believe in this god deserves death and worse?

      Matthew 5, 10, 25

      Revelation 14, 20 and 21

      Jude 1

      Mark 9

      Luke 16

      among others

      So, Graham, your religion is based on desperately hoping that I will suffer death and worse. Most religions do this, and even sects of a single religion do this to each other. So needy to pretend only your version is the truth and everyone else will be punished for not agreeing with you. it’s the mindset of a three year old.

      You do preach just like every other Christian who thinks his version of the religion is true.

      1. Hi Vel. The creepy Christian is back yet again!
        With more of my Christian nonsense, the same nonsense you use to prove that the Christian nonsense is nonsense

        “There was nothing random with me responding to a Christian making false claims about atheists”
        Then it seems you have a driving passion to correct any Christian making false claims about atheists
        As I have a passion to write about my meandering Christian path

        “It seems you think it is important to me to have you as a friend”

        No, it’s not important to me and you certainly don’t need me as a friend
        As to my creepy phone offer, it seems that no other Christian has ever dared to offer friendship
        What is more important is that you have Jesus back in your life, as Saviour

        “Humans often return to what they find familiar” if so then this should also apply to you, as you were a follower of Christ, explained in your atheist-testimony

        “We all went to the local Presbyterian church (there was a Baptist one within a mile of the farmstead but oh we couldn’t go there…sigh). It’s a lovely country church”

        When the other local church burnt down, perhaps it was an answer to your longing to go to the Baptist church
        As to the rift between your Presbyterian church and the Methodist church, maybe neither prayed for guidance before joining a one church

      2. well, at least you admit that you are indeed creepy. You also make no sense, as usual. I do have to wonder about such word salad as “With more of my Christian nonsense, the same nonsense you use to prove that the Christian nonsense is nonsense”

        I most certainly do have a “driving passion” to point out the false claims of Christians. Harmful lies are to be countered.

        for something supposedly not important to you, you invest a lot of time desperate for my attention. It’s also hilarious that you need to claim that I have no Christian friends and pretend how noble and important you are to dare offer to be friends with me. Astreja hit it on the head in pointing out your narcissism.

        And I do enjoy seeing you try to claim I was “longing” for anything, to validate yourself. No, Graham, in that sentence where I mentioned the baptist church I was pointing out how hypocritical Christians are in their hate of each other’s sects. It’s even better to see you do nothing more than victim blaming when you try to accuse that no one “prayed for guidance”. Alas for you, that baptist church had been long abandoned when the church I went to tore itself apart.

        Now, I can make up “meaning” for such events too. “maybe Tezcatlipoca wanted me to look into other religions” “perhaps it was an answer to my longing for a peanut butter and jelly sandwich”.

        and dear, do read what I’ve written. When you ignore that, you look like an idiot with your need to presume I should always agree with you. As I said, humans *often” return to what they find familiar. I, and many like me, didn’t.
