RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

If you want to write about your experiences in school, you can write on our blog.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.

The forums are mostly read-only and are in a maintenance/testing phase, before being permanently archived. Please use this time to get the contact details of people you'd like to keep in touch with. My contact details are here.

Please do not make a mirror copy of the forums in their current state - things will still change, and some people have requested to be able to edit or delete some of their personal info.

North Carolina Church to burn "Satan's books"

http://rawstory.com/2009/10/n-c-church-t...r-theresa/

Disturbing. Apparently some religious people have so much butthurt that others think differently than them that they have to result to fascist, barbarian tactics like book burning to ease their atrocious levels of whining and blaming. Although, I guess that's nothing new, but whats appalling about this is that they are burning OTHER versions of bibles. Yeah, that's how low they have degraded to, a mini-fascist group of crazy religious terrorists.

We have digressed to book burning?

Burning the works of several people who dedicated their lives to Christianity...Lord be praised!

"I heard a joke once. Man goes to doctor says "I'm terribly depressed". Doctor says "I know just what you should do. Poliacci the clown is in town, go see him, you'll be cheered right up." The man bursts into tears. "But Doctor, I am Poliacci." Funny joke. Roll on snare drum. Everyone laugh."

Silly extremists. um, isn't burning the Bible BAD???

This is so stupid, it's almost funny. But hey, why can't they give me some of those CDs? If they're burning anything 60s-70s, I'll gladly take that 'Devil Music' off their hands!

My biggest problems with this crap:
1. they're crazy extremists and they scare me
2. What a freakin waste!

An it Harm None, Do What Ye Will
An it Harm, Do Only What Ye Must


Lighten up! This life was made for experimenting, making mistakes, falling on our faces, and standing up to do it all over again.

Carla Franklin may be a whore. She may be a wonderful, kind, moral woman. Seeing as I don't know her personally, I cannot know for sure. However, I find her actions (suing Google, requesting the personal info of her critics, getting angry over random internet idiocy that she should ignore and be bigger than, trying to get this site in trouble because of a few users' commentary on the situation, etc.) pretty ridiculous and unwarranted. If she didn't want people to to be talking about/judging her, well 1. that's impossible, she's a human, and 2. she shouldn't have been a model or agreed to be on film. AND 3. she DEFINITELY shouldn't have sued Google and made all this fuss over a few random idiots whom she probably won't ever know expressing their opinion. Mmkay? MMKAY.

The Pope is a heretic? Interesting. A cat-crazy Nazi who looks like Emperor Palpatine in ugly shoes, yes. But a heretic?

People who are not catholic believe the Pope to be a heretic, as his power is based on parts of the bible that he added. According to the bible, no-one should have the power to alter the bible in any way, or give and take away salvation, as the Pope can.

That example of book-burning in Acts is a symbol of them giving up their old faith. They wanted to show publicly that they no longer followed their old ways and now follow God. This doesn't condone what the church is doing here, as the followers of the church have already declared their faith, probably through baptism, and most of them probably weren't catholics before becoming christians.

I agree with Jonno.

Plus, a chuch that burns Bibles, ain't much of a church in the first place...

I find it amusing that their "preserved, inspired, inerrant and infallible" book also happens to be the one that has the word "hell" in it the most.
