Are there any religious "HEthen's" who are offended by being named so?

@gekosoulprint, I’m not religious and I don’t particularly like the label “HEthen” either but I can’t imagine people getting offended by it. You can be more than one thing at a time especially because high existence isn’t a religion.

doesn’t matter because this site isn’t my whole life, aim, and religion. The word is just for people who want to feel like they belong to something.

Edit: I am religious btw, just giving an honest answer.

@josephm, eh.

You can ask each person on this site what a HEthen is and you will get all different answers. Everyone just has an intrinsic perception of the word whether positive or negative. I like to look beyond words as I like to look beyond the individual and see the heart.

@backcase, what does my heart read, sensai

@josephm, All people are the same, yet all are unique.

I would have to be around you for a bit. Understanding comes from withholding judgement. But I will say I find you calling me ‘sensai’ to be less than endearing, but I could be wrong, wouldn’t be the first time.

peace

@backcase, i’m probably a more complex labyrinth in person, but with no start or finish.

@gekosoulprint, That’s it; on one hand a person could be all uppity about labels, but then they could decide not to be offended, we have a lot more power than we are led to believe.

I have a passion about certain issues, they are generally not religious in nature but then a passion is the foundation for any religion, no matter what its principles, theological, metaphysical, scientific or artistic. Mine is more about cause and effect psychology on social order, but religion is too, and religion is a factor I have to keep in mind, all while trying to keep things in perspective.

@josephm, I wanted to go again, pretty lights was playing last week, and I’m not a fan, but I wanted to go just for the pillow fest down stairs

@ijesuschrist, each room is like a new club. with different vibe and atmosphere. must. go. back.

i generally like it there the most when they have art displays because it brings out the true weirdo’s.

I’m offended by people who are offended by the name HEthens.

People on this site label each other Hethens to call each other family or a sort of bond, but I prefer to stay detached and not apart of “family.” I just wander.

The whole “Religous Heathen” thing is a pretty funny contradiction.
But seriously…lol.

Fun use of irony…Must have been a comical moment coming up with that. :D

No contemplation was needed. It was handed to me. : )
It’s the little things that make life worth living I suppose.
