This is my disclaimer. This is my opinion. I could be totally wrong.
know this was an effort in futility but I needed to get it off my chest. I know nothing will change (from past attempts) and the psychobabble will continue but I will not allow it distracted me anymore.
Here's my two cents. I'm on JU everyday, but don't read a lot of new articles every day....sometimes I just pop in..but here goes.
I think the problems for you are twofold.
First of all, I don't know how long you've been round here, if this is your first screen name, or one of many. I'm going to assume you're truly new and probably don't understand some of JU's community quirks. (People will correct me as they see fit.)
JU is fairly conservative when it comes to politics. We have liberal-minded bloggers but they are scarce these days. The few who have stuck around for the duration imo are smart, funny, quick witted, etc. But, they don't post a whole lot. They can disagree, slice and dice, AND be funny all at the same time. I consider them JU liberals and I for one, love them! (This does not necessarily include the die hard liberals who only come to JU to post and run, not really looking for back and forth.)
About two years ago, JU went brown and lost a lot of its "color." Color as defined by me includes everyday life sort of bloggers, multi-political bloggers, writers, everything but gaming and technology type bloggers, etc. There were some technical (format/consolidation) changes. Some people didn't like it, so they left.
From that point on, JU went from a very diversified base of bloggers, from all over the map politically and socially, with interesting and hot topics debated daily, to a group of people with similar interests and political views. (Which is not a problem imo, but doesn't make it as vibrant, as colorful, as interesting.)
How is that the first of two problems? Because JU was once a hotbed of debate, (and when it came to politics liberals and conservatives squared off for days, weeks! on some topics....) and now is not, I believe people get a little giddy about a good debate. It is boring to always agree, so when someone comes along (you) in all your "there is no God" and "not quite conservative" views, everyone wants a piece of you. Which to you seems like dog piling I'm sure.
As I'm sure you're aware, each blogger has their own style/standard of response, some better than others. How you choose to interact, or not, is up to you.
Part two of the problem, sorry I'm going to be frank here, is your delivery. I've read several of your comments. Personally I like the way your mind turns (though obviously I don't agree with it all). I never know what you're going to say, how you'll respond, and to me THAT is what made JU so great and is missing now. Dare I say it? Diversity. Blech. I don't like to use words that have been hijacked by the culture, but there it is.
However, your insistence that the Christians on JU, put down their Christianity to communicate with you is ridiculous. Would you pick up Christ just to converse with them? No. You don't get to decide what matters to people, anymore than they get to decide it for you. Asking someone to drop what they consider the most important aspect of their lives, because you say so, is frankly very immature and conflicts with the more rational vein of your persona.
Accept it. Ignore it. Move on.
So back to your delivery. You seem an intelligent person yet you use line crossed words to communicate derision, sarcasm, etc. This smacks of someone who is either very young/immature (is your name Lucas?) or someone who believes he is infinitely superior to those to whom he communicates. I've never seen either of those approaches work well here.
In short, your delivery is characterized in the first four letters of your screen name. And last time I checked, while nice to have round, they aren't exactly essential to the conversation....lol
I hope your blogging experience here becomes more satisfactory. I think JU needs diversity (ugh, again I said it!) ...
