I sent Jenny a book about the Mormon Group in Bountiful BC.
Jenny sent me: Letter from a Skeptic – a dialog between a man and his Dad.
Now, what made me stop on Jenny’s blog was that she wrote that she had only read 3 books.
I own a library in my home – 8 huge Ikea Bookcases.
Jenny won round one of the book Exchange – She Finished the Book that I sent her.
But I have not been able to finish the slender volume of 30 letters – a back and forth between a loving son and his loving Dad.
Because, when I read the first letters, in which these two Men told each other how much they loved each other and wanted to really talk about what mattered to them.
And those parts – about the family information – made me weep.
But the apologist portions – I couldn’t read – because – with all that love in the background and providing a context to understand the relationship between an estranged Father and Son……
I couldn’t handle all the lies that the son told his father – not about Christianity – I am nto an expert.
But about the lies the son told his father about how actual historians and actual science works – because…….
There is no academic or intellectually honesty in that book.
And I was bullied in my workplace – Federal Department 7 – by people who lied, diverted around truth and evaded any accountiblity or reality – to psychologically torture me.
I told everyone – when I was 5 – I told an adult pedophile to fuck off – and he got scared and left my family – except for the aunt he was dating – alone.
When I was 12, I told The Beast of British Columbia – that I had to leave, because my Mom was coming to get me – and he got scared and ran away from me.
So adult Nina – knows what predators and – liars – are the lowest form of predator.
So, I was really glad to know – that the Father of this story – told by his own son – died – BEFORE JENNY MAILED ME THIS BOOK
and I saw – all the lies and can’t read them – but, I was inspired – BY JENNY HERSELF – AND JENNY ALONE
because what I saw in the book – but more so in Jenny, in our private conversations…..of which, I shared my last letter – but not my final letter by any stretch……
Jenny – IF You know nothing else, please know – that you – way down south and far away from Canada – HELPED TO SAVE A LIFE.
So Jenny, from all my heart – you won round one of the book exchange.
But I think, I might have gotten, the better end of the deal.
