    Religulous... Who's 'Right' ? (and Who Cares Anyway?)

    I was 6-years-old and in second grade when my teacher (a nun) told the class that everyone who wasn't Catholic was never going to go to heaven... The best that 'non-believers' were going to achieve was Limbo. Well my mother was Catholic and my father, who was a very good man, was...

    Loved and Confused

    What I mean by the title for this entry, is that I loved the movie Religulous.  It is probably now one of my all-time favorite documentaries. What leaves me confused is how others just don't seem to get it.  Granted, I do live in the south (don't get me started!), I...

    More Religiosity

    I was born at the US naval station at Quonset Point, Rhode Island shortly after my father, a maxilla-facial surgeon, joined the military at the age of 40. We moved twice, until we landed in Bethesda, Maryland, where he became the primary dentist for the President, the Vice...

    Evolution Of Thought

     The first time I heard about this movie, I was living as a Mormon in Utah. I was (of course) deeply offended at the idea that anyone could bring into question my beliefs. But it got me thinking- what other ideas are out there? Since then, I have taken multiple philosophy...
