2021.11.30 16:04 Greg_Alcantara My Time with Ang Dating Daan and How I Hated It
(TL;DR at the bottom)
Coucou tout le monde! (Hello, everybody!)
I was recently introduced to this subreddit by someone who commented to a story of mine that I shared as a comment to a post from exIglesiaNiCristo. That story contains some of my frustrations with Ang Dating Daan / Members Church of God International back when I was still in my precocious middle childhood years.
I think it’s important to note that I don’t consider myself as an ex-member of ADD, nor was I a member of ADD to begin with, since during those days, I was only a member of Kawan ng Cordero or KNC. However, it was my father who introduced me to ADD.
I’m just going to copy-paste and compile them here with some minute editings for everyone’s perusal, so apologies in advance if it’s a super-long story. (It has three parts.) The reasons I shared these stories on exIglesiaNiCristo first instead of here were (1) I’ve just only discovered that subreddit from Philippines, seen one of the posts and related to it; and (2) I didn’t know a subreddit for ex-ADD members exists.
If you still want to read the original post along with my comments (even though they’re mostly the same), here is the link.
Growing up, I’ve always been a Roman Catholic believer. I was baptised as a Roman Catholic and will likely also die as a Roman Catholic. (I am so not a religious person, though. I still have reservations when it comes to religion; I’ve also had my agnostic days.) My father wasn’t around when I was baptised. But when he came back during my grade school days, he started grooming me to his religion, which is the known rival and detractor of Iglesia ni Cristo, Ang Dating Daan. (I didn’t know it back then since I was still young.)
Fast-forward to 2006. A maternal aunt of mine [who I had never seen before prior to that year; she emigrated from the Philippines to the United States along with her brother (my uncle) long before I was born] and her then-fiancé (now ex-husband) decided to visit and spend their holidays during the dry season in the months of April and May. Of course, schools were out, and we children were excited to spend some quality bonding time with our aunt and would-be uncle.
One day, we were supposed to spend the day on the beach somewhere in Subic. Prior to that, we were all just spending the weeks out of town, eating at the Tagaytay Picnic Grove in Cavite, swimming at a well-known resort, hanging out at the Baywalk to listen to a live band performance in the middle of the night, to name a few.
Unfortunately, that day was a Sunday. My mother had to ask my stupid, effing father if I could skip a church day so I could spend it with my family.
Unsurprisingly, my zealot of a father refused. I was so bumped and pissed off that day, because there were also two nights that I could choose which to go to KNC—either a Wednesday night or a Thursday night—and, as I recall, I attended one night that week.
That Saturday night, I wasn’t sleeping in my father’s house, but in the family house my mother grew up in. However, what happened was that I also wasn’t able to wake up early for church come Sunday morning, which, if I remember correctly, was around 6.30–7.30 am. (We all know that it’s a common thing for children not to wake up early on weekends or the holidays).
However, even though I woke up late that morning and the entire family was still packing, my stupid mother still didn’t let me join ’cause I wasn’t supposed to. (Talk about being submissive with no care for her child’s welfare.) So, I was left there in the house alone with an uncle who didn’t want to join with.
The next day, my father found out. Oh, boy, oh, boy, it was a long sermon. I forgot all the deets, but I think it had a huge impact on my take with his religion. I mean, I could’ve skipped just a Sunday, just one Sunday, to spend some time with my aunt who I haven’t met before, who’s here for just a couple of weeks, who I probably will never see again for a long, long time. God wouldn’t mind me skipping just one day that was supposedly reserved for Him to spend it with her, right?
So, after that incident, I resented going to that stupid church. Whenever I was supposed to go, I would just go to an internet café a kilometre away and spend an hour or two playing games, watching videos on YouTube, or spending time on Friendster with the money allotted for the jeepney. Besides, since I was still a child, I was only supposed to hang out with all the other kids in a room specially designed for us. All we did was just play, draw and colour, watch some boring-ass TV broadcast, sing and dance, memorise bible verses, and pray, pray, pray.
(This part is just some of the things I remember back during my days with KNC/ADD which I actually just cherry-picked from the original comments I made to that post, so that I could somewhat provide a non-confusing timeline. This part was supposed to be the first, but it’s short, and I wanted to start it immediately with a grudge to ADD.)
My very first day with ADD was painful, literally. My father ‘invited’ (AKA forced) me and my mother to join. When it was time to pray, I saw them all prostrating, not kneeling, so I did the same. The prayer leader was on the platform in front of the room, and whilst he was praying, he was also crying. You could hear it out of the speakers. And it was a long, long, long, dull, excruciating moment for me. I didn’t care about praying, I just want to stand up or sit down ’cause I was prostrating for a good half an hour or so. Take note that I was in my childhood years, and I was prostrating with my knees on the tiles. I was actually praying when it will be over. If the leader was crying, I could’ve possibly been crying as well because my knees were aching like hell. They were never the same after that.
Another thing I remember but never really liked and understood was how Ang Dating Daan and Iglesia ni Cristo perpetuated hate with each other. I remember back then, when I was already a member of KNC, we were singing and dancing along to this kids’ song. I don’t remember the full lyrics, but one of the lines goes, ‘Kahit pa si Manalo… / Hindi ka uubra sa Kawan ng Cordero’.
Back in 2018, just three years ago, my father was with his fellow ADD ex-members. They had just left ADD and were going to Bulacan (forgot where; I think it was in Plaridel, just along the North Luzon Expressway) in an exclusive subdivision to attend a service by a former high-ranking ADD member whose name I forgot, but was most likely well-known amongst ADD members. My mother and I were forced to join him (again). I also remember him asking me to pack a few clothes, but never bothered to ask him why.
Whilst we were in the van along NLEX, they were talking about all the errors, inaccuracies, and inconsistencies the ADD taught them, whilst Mum and I were just listening. One of their argy-bargies was forbidding women to cut their hair. They were saying things along the lines of, ‘How could women maintain their hair hygiene, then?’ ‘It’s expensive to wash a very long hair with shampoo and conditioner, let alone hard to comb or brush it.’ ‘Nothing in the Bible says it’s forbidden to cut their hair. Women can cut their hair so long as it’s still in feminine length.’ (All in Tagalog, of course.) They were also criticising Eli Soriano and Daniel Razon, the former for his cursing, and the latter for claiming that Soriano was more important than Jesus Christ Himself. And in my mind I was like, Finally, they saw right through all the lies these men were proclaiming! Prior to that, my dad had forbade my mum to cut her hair, and she would had to ask first if she needed to. Also, according to my mum, back when she met my dad and he wasn’t an ADD member yet, he doesn’t curse. But all that changed when he joined Eli’s cult.
Nothing much happened during that morning. Just the same session, praying and crying, worshipping, taking jabs at Bros. Eli and Daniel, watching a TV broadcast, and singing along to Hillsong Worship’s ‘Still’. The only consolation to that boring-ass morning was we had a potluck outside after the service.
And, oh, about the clothes? I was supposed to be baptised that day. What made me livid was my parents didn’t even bother mentioning it to me. I was already an adult, and so I can decide what I wanted for a religion. (Remember, I said we were forced to join.) But of course, I’m not one to contest with my parents if I’m still dependent to them paying my college tuition. Still, glad it didn’t happen.

2021.11.30 16:04 mythologue I need help looking for a good Sondheim song for singing lessons
So I'm currently at college in the Netherlands studying to be a Theatre MakeTeacher, and we have vocal lessons to help us sing. I was talking to the teacher last week and asked her if we could use some Musical Theater songs for practice in class, as she often uses obscure songs. She told me she doesn't really know musical theatre songs so if I could find a relatively simple song to play on the piano with an easy chorus then we could try that in ckass. (we're currently mostly doing the choruses of songs as opposed to the rest of the verses.)
So now, in honor of Stephen Sondheim I was looking for a song of his that has such a part/chorus in it that's relatively simple for the piano and is only a few bars long.
An example of the type of songs she uses would be 'The Rhythm of Life,' which I was ashamed to find out is already a musical theatre song from Sweet Charity. We sing it in a lower tempo than the original and stick to the chorus.
Any ideas are welcome! I was looking myself and got into the rabbithole of just listening to sondheim.

2021.11.30 16:04 Specific-Sir-88 Knights of Bahamut from Minsc and Boo as Part of ToD?
My group is about to start the On the Road bit and I'm going to be adding some content in Baldur's Gate and along the way north. I'm a bit intrigued by the Knights of Bahamut in the new semi-WOTC approved Minsc and Boo's Journal of Villainy. I may offer a character a chance to join this group and thus get a few more side quests along the way as Bahamut and the Metallics (great band name, btw) begin to react to the Dragon Cult's shenanigans. Anyone else done this? Any suggestions?

2021.11.30 16:04 C2H5OH-ol I am an Ethan, and there’s literally nothing you can do.
My name is Ethan and there’s actually nothing you can do about it. Go ahead, comment “fuck you”. These words bounce off like a bullet on my 10kg/mL muscles that ripple throughout every cubic inch of my body. I’m not even joking. Every Ethan you’ve met in your life can probably deadlift 500kg+ but wears those baggy sweaters from Tjmax to conceal their record-breaking physique. We do this to hide from the government who fear our power and would terminate us on the spot once they find out. These attempts are usually unsuccessful which is why you feel you can never escape from Ethan. Because you can’t. The funniest part is that the five thousand something slices of shit behind this sub are probably laughing like an imbecile at these degenerate posts as they proudly stroke their name tags that read “Dylan” or “Kyle” or deadass “Kevin”. These names are literally the male equivalent of Karen. You may think this is some kind of satirical joke, but I warn you, we are as real as existence itself. Soon, we will multiply, and we will take over every living corner of the earth. Before long, the non-Ethan race will be no more as the planet you once stood on is renamed to Earthan. Watch out.
