If you are not a priest, please stop blessing everyone over and over again.

The only reason i am here is to unite and to share my experiences with like minded people. God was i wrong. I was active on this page for only one case. Then that awful competition started and the idea made me sick and decide not to stay. I used other channels to find the information i was looking for. I am full-time active helping people for more then a year now. I am the founder of what we call the Frisky Project. You will not find us in the Yellow pages or on the Internet. At least i hope not. There is a reason for that. I worked very hard to make trustworthy connections all over the world. We fight against child prostitution on the Philippines. But who cares?! They are whores. Right? Who cares about whores anyway. Especial the minors in poor families.

I live in a small country in the center of Europe where cardinals protect pedophile priests and bishops. One bishop(Vangheluwe) is hiding from the law in a monastery. He is a pedophile himself. I am ashamed to tell he is the uncle of my nieces husband(+). Go looking for the stories on this matter yourself. You have Internet, you will find it on CNN, Youtube and other channels. Is this my church? S**t no, it no longer is. I can't respect those people. No way! I never hated God but i hate the god of those people.

How can i cooperate with people who don't even try to understand my opinion? I should have known better. Also if anyone tries to impress me by telling about there disability and how hard life is, you missed the target by far. Petty yourself. I can't show respect to anyone who doesn't respect others who don't fit in your pocket. I tried. And i tried. And again. I cannot take any risks with you people. I can't risk to lose what we (good friends and i) worked on so hard.

One last time i ask you to reconsider my quote. As long you do not understand what i actually mean by this, you are not worthy to help others. Those who do understand know what mean. Ask them. They will help you.

Keep up the good work.

 in response to FriskyFreddy...   I have to agree with Freddy here. I think s/he is misunderstood. Freddy is simply pointing out the obvious.

Prayers can be helpful. But they do not pay the bills or put food on the table - money does that.

God cannot drop a job in your lap - you have to actually look for and apply for it.

As for the pope - which freddy mentioned - he is simply a man. He is no better or worse than the rest of us. He doesn't have superpowers. He isn't more godly than any of us. In fact, I have seen some people on here who deserve to be treated a lot better than he does!

I think what Freddy is saying is open your eyes, hearts, and minds. See life and religion for what it really is. Don't be swayed by what someone else tells you to believe. Trust your heart. Do what needs to be done, what is possible for you to do. If you feel helpless say so. We are all human beings - one people, here to love and support each other in spite of our differences.

I think what the problem , if there is one, is it was the aproach and diliverance of what was said.
If you tell someone that they are wrong , in any manor, of their thinking on a subject it is interpreted as an attack.Someone with an open mind surely knows this. You can question it to try to understand but as soon as you make a statement that the person is wrong and needs to see it your way you offend them.

You keep speaking of running away. Why? Don't you believe in the way you believe? I believe in the way that I believe. The rest of Aidpage does not believe exactly the way that I do, which is good because it shows that the believe in what they believe in. Some how with all these different voices we are all speaking the same. Tongues if you will.
You spoke with and touched the pope.That means what? Like you said he is just a human being. In my opinion it doesn't mean I should say oh, well this person must be right in everything they say. I met and shook hands with Ted Kennedy but that didn't make me a Kennedy or a President.
I have read some of your other post so as to try and understand. We aren't trying to run you off. We, are just letting you know where we stand, in each and every one of our own ways. Choose learn, the only thing We and I think I will be speaking for most of Aidpage is to respect our diferences as we respect yours. You want to believe that way fine, let me, us, believe in ours.Just because you don't think( which surely you aren't) that if you pray for someone else it doesn't matter, if you believe that fine don't tell us that with our doing it it doesn't. That is respectin our idesa and that is respecting yours, enough said.

 in response to FriskyFreddy...   This all started with you. You are the one who came at me because of a prayer I shared with the aidpage family this morning. You did not have to like what I said, but there was no reason for you to get upset with the idea that I pray for others.
You state that you are a Christian, and I cannot judge your heart or your religion, but I am confused at the fruit you exhibit because it does not seem like it is coming from a loving heart.
You state that you talked with John Paul II, that's great for you, I talk with God every day and several times a day.
I believe in one God, but I would not disrespect the beliefs of others. I believe in the Trinity,( Father, son & Holy Spirit). There is nothing that you could say that would change the way I believe because I experience His presence every day. I am not trying to get you to convert to my beliefs, all I ask is that you don't disrespect my faith.
Sorry that you feel we messed up your Christmas, but honestly we do not have that power, you brought your feeling on yourself.
FYI, I have already prayed for you several times today, and I will continue to do so. I will also pray for the needs of the people here.
It seems that there is something unsaid here, because you appear to be very angry. The profanity is uncalled for, educated people can speak without it, and I take offence that you speak this way toward the ladies here. We are all adults, lets act like it. Maybe we should just agree to disagree and start over.
I hope you continue to be a part of this site, and I hope you get to know us and maybe understand where we are coming from. The only request I have is that you behave like a gentleman. If you have a problem with me, then direct your comments to me and leave my friends alone. Being rude to others will not help anyone, and we should be here to help and encourage others.

Attack? What attack? What are you talking about?! Why does everyone think i am an atheist or something? Am not. I am a Christian who respects other religions beside Christianity. I live 800 miles from Rome. I visited The Vatican twice. In 1986 I had a audience (don't know if this is the correct Eng word for it) with John Paul II. Shaking hands and a 3 minute talk. That was it. That's probably what's am worth. No more, but also no less. If you didn't know, the pope is human. Flesh and blood. Warm personality. At least JP2 was. It all made me changed my ideas on religion. There is no such thing as the only true god. This doesn't show any respect towards others. Did you read any of the words i wrote? You all started to flame me as if am some kind of intruder you want to chase away. I think i better leave you all in peace. I didn't want to mess up your Xmas eve. But u sure messed up mine.

One more thing. Next time you are in church, remember:

"People who are needy don't give a shit about your prayers."

 in response to FriskyFreddy...   I understood what you were trying to say.
Yes, the mind is stronger than the body and as you say it can manipulate itself or in other words Fool itself just like you are trying to in this conversation.
Who said anything about manipulating other peoples minds??
Being open minded doesn't have anything to do with respect.Except that you can understand their point even though you may not believe in it.

Number 2, unusual,I'm not asking you to lie. First you presume to pretend to be religous, if you aren't then you have already lied to yourself. You would only be lying to your"friend" if you didn't pray for him. Is it lying to give someone comfort? Only if you don't pray for them like you said, as I have stated before.

To be open minded you have to be objective. You have to know where the lines are and aren't. Just because a person thinks willy nilly doesn't make them open minded it makes them silly.You can show a person respect without being open minded.

You are correct to learn from one another and from thier and your mistakes.Yes, the goal would be to become a better person.

Oh, come on, you were making some sense, now? To become all! You are trying to tell me that you can learn enough in one life time to become one(all), the ultimate.You'd have to live two life times to reach the life experience of Jesus the man and many many more to reach the experience of Jesus the spirit of God.
You said that I have provenso far, yet you didn't say what. I , not once said that you said thet I had a closed mind. I was pointing out that your mind is not so open as you claim. What I have proven is that you do not know what you are talking about, it's like the addage," I hear you knocking but you can't come in."You think you do thus the manipulation of your own mind, trying to fool yourself. In both post I have been teaching yo and you have not noticed only to argue your so called point, which was that you have a more open mind than the rest of us. Why? Supposedly because you come from Europe and they have more open minds than what, who, the Americans, North Americans, or just us who are on Aidpage, making you oh, so superior because you have an open mind.
As you have stated you must learn from one another. You have not learned a thing. You must hear to understand. You hear the thunder of your mind trying to start, like a car engine but it doesn't turn over and start.
I would not be offened if you told me that you believed in something different,or that you didn't believe at all. It is of no consequence to me. I believe the way I believe and another person can believe in anyway that they want to. Even if they claim that they don't believe, they must believe in something,doesn't have to be religous, even if it's their belief that they believe it.
You haven't dissapointed me, with the statements that you have made, I had higher expectations and you didn't come close.You are sorry, No I am.
May God Bless whoever your beliefs sees God to be.

 in response to nini3...   Wow! I am not here to read. I am here to help.
You try to chase me away. are ya? Maybe you are right. I better go start my own aidpage.
There is no need to convince me of anything. I know God. I am a Christian myself. But who cares? God? The people i try to help? Or you? It must be you and your friends here. It is good to defend your God. Or better: our God.

I think i misjudged this webpage. Again! The reason why i stayed away the first time was because someone had the brilliant idea to make a competition out of this. That idea made me realize no one on aidpage actually cares about any only but themselves.
btw. Who won?

Talk to Schmidty
 in response to Schmidty...   It is obvious you didn't understand a word i wrote.

1. The mind is stronger then the body. If you really believe in something, whatever that something is, you can manipulate your own mind. That is one of the reasons i don't mind people being religious or not. Every effort in trying to manipulate other peoples mind is wicked. People have minds of there own you know. Respect them for what they are.

2. Maybe it is. What if i pretend to be religious and tell a sick friend i will prey for him because i know it will give him comfort. Are you asking me to lie?

You are talking about being objective. I was talking about being open minded. Showing respect. Learning from one an other. If someone teaches you something new, you can use this new experience, to become a better person. Becoming all is the ultimate.
Although you have proven so far, i didn't say you have a closed mind.

It seems that you would be offended. Else you wouldn't say such thing unless you think it has impact on me. Sorry to dissapoint you. Have a nice day.

 in response to FriskyFreddy...   Prayers are never wasted on anyone and I will pray for those who ask for it , and especially for those who think they don't need it.
I don't have negative energy toward you, or anyone else. Life is to short to waste time being negative and it does not accomplish anything good. I choose to focus on the beauty of life and the peace that God provides.
I am sorry that you feel the people here are being hostile toward you, and that you are unable to grasp what so many here are trying to explain to you. You have a right to believe any way that you choose to, but you should not attack those who believe differently.
