Religion And Me
To all those that email me:
Learning about different religions has always fascinated me. Yes, I believe there is a higher power. But, for all I know, it could be an alien race and we are a big science experiment. Do I think that's true, I dunno. Church, not for me. It'd probably be struck by lightning the moment I entered.
I used to be very religious. I went to church. I prayed. A lot. I very much believed without question that God existed. But, when nothing gets better, even when you pray, pray and pray, you lose that unquestioning, unwavering faith.
I started questioning. Then, I found out that what I thought was normal kid life really wasn't. My parents had lied to me. So, I went to church. I talked to the pastor. I poured out all the soul that an eight-year-old has. I lost all faith from that conversation. It took years before I could even think about religion again. So pardon me for not being convinced by those emails.
- Telling me that I'm going to hell for being a practicing lesbian, won't scare me into going straight. Besides, I never practiced, I was.
- If I go to hell for having sex without the "benefit" of marriage, not my fault. I can't marry.
- Plus, would God really make me, just so that I could go to hell for how he made me? I won't start that conversation.
- I don't hurt anyone with my dykeness. Maybe, the focus should be on child molestors, murderers, and the people that commit real crimes that hurt people.
