Problems With Religion
I used to say I was atheist. How easy it is to say that you do not believe in anything, that you are free from religion and all of its splendor. You have nothing to fear, nothing to have to worship. You had nothing, in a very literal sense. So then I began to explore the possibilities of religion. How complicated they are! You must be this, and learn that, and this particular thing or person is not allowed. Just to throw this out here, my mother is bisexual. So that basically shot down and killed hundreds of well-known religions right there. I love her very much, and I support her in everything that she does. No ******* religion is going to tell me that my mother is unholy, or unclean, or bound for hell. So then I went to the "beginning to become very popular" wicca religion. And for some of you out there, Wicca is not a Devil-based religion. In fact, they don't even believe in the Devil. They say that to give evil a name is to make it strong, so basically they just ignore the Devil and Hell all together. I liked Wicca, but worshipping nature and so many different gods and goddesses was kind of blowing my "just a little bit religious" thing clean out of the water. I wanted to have a little bit of faith, not a sudden downpour of gods from above. So I guess now I'm agnostic. I believe that there is some sort of power, being, entity, whatever you want to call it...but I don't worship it. I don't even have a name for it. Maybe it could be the Almighty Agnostic, god to all those of unsure religious beliefs.
