What song/band helped you when leaving the church?

2021.12.08 04:11 lostsomethingbig What song/band helped you when leaving the church?

The song Mantra by Bring Me the Horizon recently came up on my play list and it released around the same time in 2018 when I started to question the church. I think when I was coming to the conclusion the church was a lie, especially while reading the CES letters, the song just really hit me different.
Whole theme of the song is about leading or following a cult, I mean the starting line is, "Do you want to start a cult with me?"
There were a couple parts that hit me hardest, the first was:

Through this existential misery
Now we're gonna need some real estate
But if I choose my words carefully
Think I could fool you that I'm the guru?
Wait, how do you spell epiphany?
Just the church's greed for property, carefully wording their lies, and the fact the leaders must constantly be fooling people to remain on top really stood out to me. The other part was:
Before the truth will set you free, it'll piss you off
Before you find a place to be, you're gonna lose the plot
Too late to tell you now, one ear and right out the other one
'Cause all you ever do is chant the same old mantra
It hurt to learn everything. Basically had to become a new person and that is something that can be very hard if you can't accept the truth. And boy oh boy do I relate to chanting the same old mantra in this outdated church, temple and church service was always a self repeating mantra to me. The final part:
It's time to tap into your tragedy
Think you could use a new abuser
Close your eyes and listen carefully
While this part didn't happen to me specifically, the church very much abused my wife in just about the most horrible way it could. The church looks to find those that need comfort and simply takes advantage of some tragedy to help them feel "safer" while they are dragged deeper into the cult. It disgusting and mind boggling how well it works on some people.
Mantra was really different from the BMTH music I grew up with (Pray for Plagues was my go to scream-o phase song lol), but it really helped me process my thoughts at the time. Even now when it randomly pops up on a playlist I takes me back to a time where I was scared of everything and helps me reflect on how far I've come.
So what songs or bands helped you?

2021.12.08 04:11 _Gnarmalade_ Let’s actually try and solve who the Scranton Strangler is intentional or not.

I haven’t seen anybody post the first obvious evidence to begin with to solve this case. The car is a 2000 green Mercury Cougar v6. The license plate # is CHE-4265. In the car chase scene on tv that the office crew are watching it is indeed the same car model. The only problem is it’s difficult to go frame by frame and see if there somewhat of a clear shot of the license plate (Especially on Peacock). It does look similar though. If the license plate is different, then this will put an end to this being one of the office workers. Does anyone have a clear screenshot of the car being chased?

2021.12.08 04:11 akcelt907 Would it be legal for homeowners that are selling their house to refuse to accept a sales offer from someone who used better.con (misspelled on purpose) for their mortgage?

That's the question...I'd love to encourage people to actively ruin better.con and home sellers could help by refusing to sell to people who use better.con's predatory services.
