I came to the decision that the main thing that people should get out of religion is the golden rule... treat others how you would like to be treated. If we all stuck to that, religious or non, we'd live in a much happier place.
** That's exactly how I feel. I should have thrown that in with my long-winded babbling.
I think that if there is an afterlife of any sort where judgement is passed, that I should pass.
** That's crossed my mind as well.
: I think it's important to be spiritual. To be connected in a emotional way to your own self, to others, to the earth, etc.
** EXACTLY (though I don't think spiritual is the word I'd use.. :-\)
I have respect for all people and all beliefs, and only ask the same respect for my beliefs in return.
** Good luck, I live in the south, on top of my family scolding me about not being in the church I have every southern Babtist for ten miles who feel the need to share with me that I'm going to hell every time we talk.
