    I always notice how scanty the forums are on Sundays. I mean, I go to Church, but sometimes its so boring - sorry to say, but it really is, that I just log into a forum on my mobile phone before I doze off in there! smile but really, do hubbers go to Church or are they off doing something else? Let us know.

      I go to church every Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday. If it is boring to you maybe you are going to the wrong church.

        Its just that every once in a while they bring these boring preachers who hammer you with boringness - they practically put everyone to sleep. No kidding! When that happens I watch TBN practically all day!

        Mon Ami Fiery, I will have to second this opinion. Maybe you should change church. How can God Bless one, if one is not paying attention.  smile

        EDIT: I go on Sunday's. Sometimes mid-week.

    I'm a Confirmed Café Hopper.

    Does that count? I am religious about it. Go everyday (to several) and the same one every Sunday.

    my religious observance is Friday night. And I do enjoy Joel Osteen on Sunday night for his 1/2 hour show.

    I'm an agnostic, buy yes I usually spend time in church on Sundays.  "Church" being the deep swamps and river in my rural area.  I bet my church is more beautiful, more peaceful, and more enjoyable than most attend.

      That's me too - though the thought that you could browse the web from an iPhone when forced to go to church as a kid would have been a whole less boring. These days I wouldn't be bored - I'd be argumentative - and then therefore banned LOL

    Going to the right church is important. I hate to hear the terms religious or even religion discussed like it's all the same.  You don't have to be in church to have a personal relationship with your God.  I used to walk around stressed out half the time, too much to do, too little time, etc.  Now, I have a joy about life that came after I chose to honor God and develop that personal relationship.  I choose to go to church.  My church has great music, you dress any way you want to, they have several types of special groups you can join, and they are active in the communtiy. For instance they have a prison ministry where volunteers from the church go to the prison and teach those who want to be taught about God, about living skills like balancing a check book, and they can get there GED's  These men are getting out of prison and almost none are returning.  Going to that kind of church makes you know you are doing something that makes a positive difference in the world.

    I hope this doesn't devolve into "my church is better than your church."

    For some going to church is an important part of worship, for some it's being part of a community. Just because we enjoy community-based worship doesn't mean that we don't enjoy nature or anything else. Or that we only pray in church.

    How did I end up in a religious thread anyway? Oh it was posted in the Hubber's Hangout...she says scampering away....to safety.

But I can play down the flames, I'm a smart guy, I only play on peoples intellects, not like testing or anything, you know, just to see them for what they're worth. I have no patience for non-intellectuals, especially those who make themselves out to be just the opposite. I call them posers, phonies, plastics. The world can do without them.

    I used to go to church once and awhile, but as an adult honestly I am kind uncomfortable going.  When I went with close friends at a community church I actually felt comfortable in this small group, but there is nothing I hate more than the feeling of having to socialize with a new large group of people. 

    Also, some Christians are just more judging than others for my taste.  My friend goes to church and she tried to date a guy who was going to church for awhile, and he actually broke up with her for not being Christian enough for him.  She met her new boyfriend outside of church, so I feel at times church can isolate a person from good people outside of the organization.  This is especially true if a particular church advocates only dating people within the church, which is fine, but I do not like to close my mind to who can be my friends.

    I have to agree with you SweetiePie, as having to go to church as a young child all through my young adult years, I found church goers were quite closed minded.  I never found a decent date within a church and learned the hard way that just because you don't attend one, doesn't mean you are not a good person.  Or that you aren't capable of love. I feel that what you believe should come from the heart...whether it is of God or that of what you choose...not what religion you have joined.

    We use to go every Sunday - then a big to do went down at our church and half the congregation left.  We've found another church we really enjoy, the music, the sermons & my son loves their youth group.  But its a HUGE church, and I don't feel connected to the people there at all, not like our old little church.

    I attend services on Friday night. Sunday I work. But some members also tend to family obligations on Sundays. That is when the kids come home to visit, (they don't work or go to school on that day), that is the day when families go shopping for the week, or back yard 'fun'.
    I think internet surfing not just for us but for regular surfers as well is lighter on Sundays.

    In Internet parlance: a troll is someone who presents controversial topics on forums and then stirs the pot of emotions with no other point than to be involved in the conflict.  Some are better than others at keeping the flames going.  The ones with "good" troll skills can make it nearly impossible for reasonable, thinking people not to feel compelled to say something in response.  But that is how you feed them. 

    If you want to put together some evidence, have a look at just the titles of forum posts begun by this sort of creature and you will see the pattern immediately.  Always polemic, or dancing along the edges of polemics or some other hot button.  The slightest veil of genuine concern or interest on topic "X" to get it going, and always embroiled in conflict by the end.

    Wasting thoughtful comments on someone like that is akin to stuffing live butterflies into the garbage disposal.

    (Even a post like this will feed one.  The morsel makes me cringe even as it drops from my keyboard.)
