Notable Quotes

You must keep sending work out; you must never let a manuscript do nothing but eat its head off in a drawer. You send that work out again and again, while you're working on another one. If you have talent, you will receive some measure of success - but only if you persist.
--Isaac Asimov

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. In all seriousness, I've never had much to inspire faith happen.

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.

Growing up as a PK in the Bible Belt, I got a good inside look at what organized religion is really all about.

I agree with you totally on at least 2 points:

1) What consenting adults do behind closed doors is none of my business. Ot anyone else's.

2) Your realtionship with whatever God you believe in (if any) is none of my business. Or anyone else's.

Let's start a network of people who keep their noses out of other people's business. If we can get a few celebrities involved, make it a fad, who knows? We might actually wind up with something decent and moral.

Like the poem in the post above.

Practicing Lesbian, huh? So what happens when you get really GOOD at being a lesbian? To semi-pro or professional lesbians have a different level of eternal punishment?
What about non-practicing lesbians? Just purgatory? Just bad sex.

Not all Religious folks are crazy, you know. I'm just now coming to realize that, and I thought I pass it along.
