The list gets longer
Raised in the northeast as a Roman Catholic and even served as an altar boy. Never had one bad experience in the church (I know what comes to mind with catholic altar boys) but also never believed one word of the b.s. they were serving. Just ignored and occassionally laughed at religion for most of my adult life. Now, though, I have a couple kids and this has changed my perspective on a lot of things, religious "tolerance" being one of them. Further complicating my situation is the fact that I live in the south now and JEEzus seems to be everywhere. I guess I feel like I need to be open about my disbelief for the sake of my kids. If even one person had had the nerve to call shenanigans on religion when I was growing up, it would have made my own childhood a lot less confusing and maybe even more productive. Anyway, glad to introduce myself and I look forward to exchanging thoughts with you in the future.
