Hello! An introduction thread in the introduction section
Hi there, new guy here. Found this forum after watching the Nightline debate featuring Sapient and Kelly vs. Kirk Cameron and Ray "banana" Comfort
I grew up in a Catholic household in Canada, with immigrant parents. While I didn't always wrestle with faith, I certainly didn't buy every part about it (I never once believed that the cracker and wine became the body and blood of Christ, as that suggestion is plainly absurd to put it lightly). The one good thing that came of this religious upbringing was being introduced to the pipe organ, which I continue to play (mind you, in a church, as it's certainly not a diverse occupation). Despite the attendance, I am an atheist. It was actually quite the mental road to get from where I was to where I am. It started with believing the Catholic sacrament of confession to be quite useless, or even destructive. Once I stopped going to that, the rest of it just fell like dominos. A few years worth of dominos.
Anyhow, glad to be aboard.
