I’M A LOSER: HUGE BALLS, Loser Stories, Leaving Church, and Brainwashing: Bill Burr

HUGE BALLS, Loser Stories, Leaving Church, Brainwashing, Bill Burr.

We spend some time talking about my recent surgery as well as the Loser stories sent in by Ron Smith and Susan.  I feel like I am starting to feel the freedom to be myself on a whole other level lately.  I am caring less and less about what other people think of me.  It feels good.  So fuck off, and check out this episode as we wrap it up with some clips from Comedian Bill Burr talking about church brainwashing and letting go of religion.  Laugh you fucks.  Life’s too short to being caring this religious burden around.

EPISODE 028: The Religious Sales Pitch: Part 1: Christian Grindstaff

We talk about everything from our past lives in the institution to our slow transition from once being Evangelical Conservative Republicans to now Liberal Democrat Socialists and how it happened.  As well as our personal convictions, how we saw and I used my past "Christian" leadership to impose personal dogmas onto congregations and people.

EPISODE 027: Losing Ain't Easy: Part 2: Liz & Mat von Ehrenkrook

The process of losing your religion isn't easy.  As Lyn Morrow said, "It's like wiping the wipe board clean" of everything you ever believed and starting over.  That creates so many PTSD triggers for so many of us because these are things that people we respected taught us, our parents may have given us, church leaders we trusted, all shared their concrete personal truths to us, full of certainty.  Then finding out their certainty, isn't yours.  What do I do now?
