    Iv was really big into religion I grew up

    supposably being "catholic" when I would go to church every Sunday and Wednesdays for youth meetings. Then one day I found out the priest had raped one of the boys that would go to the youth meetings with me . I was in 8th grade. So my parents made me switch church and the next...

    I have never had the diligence to act truly in

    accord with any religion, nor, being born a skeptic, have I had the inclination. I have no doubt that many so-called "holy books" have much to offer mankind, but their best counsel is usually destroyed by their interpreters, who are unwilling to admit that their content is based...

    I don't have a religion.

    My family is all Christian But I could never accept it. I'm not saying I don't believe in god. I just can't lay my problems to someone just because someone says he/she is real because that's what they believe. I carry my own burden and ask for no ones help. My challenges in my...

    I was never raised as a religious person.

    My parents and I never went to church it's because my mom didn't like how they had you do all these things go to events give them money(when there this giant church with gold leaf everywhere) and it made sense. I've been in an actual church service I think 4 times so far in my...

    Not That I Don't Want One...

            When I was young, like really young, we went to a catholic church. I went to Sunday school, I was babtised, I was getting ready for a communion. (I still don't really know what that is...) However, by the age of 7, we stopped attending church. My mother began to...

    I Believe In Nothing Religious.

    I have absolutely no belief in God and I can't even consider such nonsense. I don't know if anyone else feels the same way, but I've only met one or two people in my life that did and I was married to both. Am I so unusual to have no faith? Is the human brain so wired for it...

    More And More

    I've come to realize I'm not suited to be a 'member/follower' of any type of religion. I just remember watching people in church 'getting the holy spirit' and jumping around and 'speaking in tongues' and wondering why I didn't feel it? What was wrong with me. At this time I was...

    Never Have, Never Will

    I have never gone to church, even as a child. My mother believed that I should be the one to decide what religion I would follow, and now, I dont really want to follow any. To me, a lot of them just limit you. You have to do this, do that. and a lot of those people all seem to be...

    I Choose Not to Have One

    I feel that most religions tie you down to one way of life. I prefer to just call myself diverse. I don't have a problem with people who have strong religions though. Especially christianity and other religions of the like because I would have to say they have the strongest...

    I refuse to be pushed around by a book older

    But That Doesn't Make Me An Atheist,,,

    I was never bought up

    as religious. I first became aware of it when I went to school. You see, back in the 1970s some schools in the UK were still populated by the 'old school' Teachers bought up in the halcyon days of the 1950s, where Sunday School and church were a focal point of what is was to be...

    Feels Like A Divorce

    that tells me I'm inferior because I have a vagina. It does not make sense and basically proof that religion is made up by men.

    Why Should There Be Religion?

    Why should there be religions? Yes it's something for people to believe in and to turn to but what good does religion actually give us? I know everyone is entitled to their own beliefs, I have nothing against it but I have no religion. Religion has caused wars, more deaths than a...
