      • I appreciate your reply, however, things have changed for me.
        I recently inherited a small parcel of land here in Georgia, so I am planning to make this my safe place. This is where I will come when things go south and SHTF or whatever may happen.
        I am now looking for others who are in the right state of mind to come help me develop this land in preparation for the future.
        Even if I did not now have this land and were still looking for a place, I would have to decline your offer of contact. I am not a christian, and while I have nothing against christians, I have no interest in connecting with a group of them with respect to my future. I tried once to connect with group of believers and it did not end well.
        I am serious hard core about what I do, and in a community environment, surrounded by christians, I would not be able to live in a manner that works for me, and I would not be able to be who I am. I am not a fake and do not intend to place myself in an uncomfortable environment. I am a deeply spiritual man, but I do not believe in the same way that you do, and that will always be an issue, and will always be a problem.
        Several times I have tried to join up with believers but every time, the group began acting more like a religious cult and I have no interest in that sort of thing. Sadly there is no way anyone can ever convince me that this will not happen with their group or any other future group. A prepper group, in my personal opinion, built on religious ideology is high risk for developing cultist ideologies and no one can convince me this will not happen again. I have seen it happen to many times, and there is no reason for me not to expect it to happen again. I have no interest in subjecting myself to that scenario again.
        Again, thanks for your reply but I must respectfully decline.

        • I just want to say, this was a really well-written (and graceful & respectful) way to decline.
          And, bro, mad points for not ghosting.

          I also just want to pull out this part of the reply…
          “A prepper group, in my personal opinion, built on religious ideology is high risk for developing cultist ideologies and no one can convince me this will not happen again.”
          …before anybody starts gnashing teeth.

          It’s not an anti-religion or anti-Christian sentiment, or the guy saying he could never deal with Christians (or any particular religion).
          It’s a belief about base ideology of groups.
          As such, it’s no different than those of us who aren’t interested in living with militia-like barracks, anti-government groups, groups whose farms/gardens rely on shipped feed, fuels, and chemicals, groups with either of the two primary expectations for supply distribution, or groups/users who choose to avoid a certain subsect of society.
          I doubt I would be a good fit for a vegetarian or vegan group even if they went “no, it wouldn’t bother us for you to hunt and eat or raise chickens for eggs and stewpot 3-4 y/o birds”, or a group who sees animals as things that can be treated like an unfeeling packet of meat. Nor would I be a good fit for a group who thinks the little lady should be in the kitchen or sewing something while the big men handle the shooting and planning and dropping trees and fixing cars. I would not choose to subject myself to either of those groups, nor to a group/partner that did not allow me to openly and comfortably talk to God like the big dude has a sense of humor and is right there at all times, not just meals and bedtime and when my truck appeals to a large snake as a warm resting spot. Same thing.

          Cheers,
          Pup
          (You’re welcome to HMU on my rebecca admin email or prepper forum to further debate this one, but be 100% to direct any foaming-mouth attacks on me, not Scout.)

          • I want to thank you.
            You saw the intent of my response as it was meant, and did great explaining it.

            I just left a community a year ago because, while I was told it would be no problem, it became a problem.
            I am deeply spiritual but for me it is a very private thing. At the same time I am a soldier, a warrior. Because of this, being surrounded by Christians doesn’t general work because I am not always the sweet fluffy guy people would like me to be. At the same time I’m not the crazy gun-stroker who confuses Anarchy with Chaos.

            Fortunately I recently inherited this bit of soil so I no longer need to worry about finding the right community where I fit in. I’m hoping to find 3 or 4 people to come and help me create a nice retreat for about 6 people.
            Of course, having had my share of working with other communities (non of which I am allowed to discuss), I have a real good idea what works and what doesn’t work, so my vetting process, along with standards will be much different than most.
            I’m looking for just the right kind of people. People who’s minds are in the same place. It is absolutely imperative that we each maintain our own unique personalities, and respect each other in a manner which recognizes the line separating my rights from your rights, but only when everyone is on the same page with respect to goals and desired outcomes can anything work.

            Individual yet United

            P.S. What is “Ghosting”?

          • Ghosting is where we decide we don’t want to pursue something further and just ignore it like it never happened (direct emails to spam with or without reading and without replying, seeing the caller ID and hitting “ignore”, “unfollow” on Facebook instead of “unfriend”ing somebody – the latter of which is sometimes about not offending that soul but still saving our sanity).
            Usually it doesn’t provide the recipient with any idea why or what is going on. They just know they never heard back.

            You also could have just said “hey, my thing changed, good luck” or “hey, I think maybe we’re not a good fit” and rolled along merrily.
            And there would be NOTHING wrong with that.
            Instead, you said why you think you’re not only a good fit but feel it’s a dangerous mentality. Agree or disagree, the recipient has more to work with and a better understanding of what makes you feel that way. They can carry that forward without hangups, whether they give it thought or not. It’s explaining WHY “it’s not you, it’s me” instead of just walking out the door.

            I know there’s both sides of the coin on same-same-same-same personal beliefs – that to work in the long term we have to share a lot of the same grounds, versus the dangers of groupthink.
            I kind of figure that with a big enough goal/purpose, and depending on whether or not we respect differences or can’t abide by the differences, it can work. We manage in military barracks and units all the time, and so do cops and FF’s. (Flip side, coasties and DNR peeps split on closing a fishing season to commercial and rec fishermen but not natives will tell us almost automatically who has a fisherman in the family and which political divide they’re on. But, with some exceptions, they get past it, for the job and what the job gives them or provides for family/bigger picture.)
            So keep on plugging. You’ll find your tribe. (Sometimes when/where you least expect it.)
