A huge reason why I don't attend church even though I'm a Christian. I'm tired of them preaching they want my money. I personally believe God is fine and accepting I donate money to charity.

Don't confuse what the church does and what God wants.

Tithing, is mentioned in the bible and is not designed to prove faith in God .. But faith in the Church. They use the angle of showing support for the Church and further that you are not a "slave" to money. You know the " … Read more

My son was travelling home late one night through rural Bedfordshire. He was pulled over by a police van and accused of being drunk (he wasn't).

They then asked to search his car for drugs (there weren't any).

The officer in charge then decided to give my son a breath (sobriety) test. They then found … Read more

I worked for a time in Thousand Oaks, So Cal. My office was opposite the headquarters of a Christian "fundamentalist" broadcasting station ( it was 15 years ago, but I'm guessing that it is probably still there).

I had two months radiation therapy in 2010 and have been getting check-ups every 6 or 12 months since. Before the therapy there were doctors and a surgeon. Total cost? A few hundred dollars.

If the admin HAS blocked access to all those things, then there is nothing you can do about it in Windows itself. This is DoD approved security. 

There ARE bootable Linux disks out there (I have one, curiously created by Microsoft) that will allow you to access the Windows filesystem and change a few things … Read more

Could you spell that correctly? Could you capitalize? Could you swap the noun for the correct verb? Could you create a syntactically correct sentence?
