If it's just a knee-jerk "I don't feel comfortable discussing that because I've been told not to" then all I feel is contempt. Not contempt for their intent, just contempt for their lack of courage and contempt for their lack of grey matter. New members, young members I can maybe give a bit of a pass. Lifers? There's just no excuse for the synaptic constipation.
And at the risk of offending a segment of the population here, I'm stunned at the general dumbassery of those who manage to jettison Joseph but who are unable to jump back from Jesus. They were both pretty cool, from various perspectives of the "get shit done" variety. But if you're able to say, "Prophet? No." you should have both the cranial wattage and scrotal payload to also say, "Son of god? Fuck, no." I'm not talking about finding fulfillment in a church community or faith tradition, I'm talking about rejecting the male bovine feces of literal belief in the associated miraculous claims.
Good stuff! Cathartic to read, and full of descriptive terms I haven't seen before. Welcome
