Defying Logic

You know, I don't really believe in organized religion. I've to been a couple different types (like five), and the closest I've felt to a happy place was an Episcopal church that we'll eventually go back to when we get our life straightened out, time wise. And they stop having 10:30 services. Because it's normally at like 11:15. Which is a much easier time for us. Mostly they seem welcoming. Not a one of those five were a perfect fit. It's more what's the most fitting within the confines.

Now, the thing of it all, is I have a friend who posted a couple stories earlier today about her brother's attitude on church. Can't repost, or won't, cause it's meant for friends list eyes only. But it kinda bugged me. Because she's found her path, it must be his. I don't get that. If he doesn't want to do something, then let it rest. It's not her decision. I don't get the converting thing. People will come to their own decisions, in their own time. I just...don't get it.

Sorry, random rant, I know. But it really bugged me that because he didn't attend a Bible based church and would rather think it through with logic, he's wrong. Why do people say that? Churches are great for some people, but not everyone fits into the neat little boxes. Like me. I've kinda picked and grabbed from various religions, along with non-religions like basically spirituality. And then she went on to question her mother's actions on her brother's choices. I just don't get it.

Religion is a touchy subject for everyone...religious or not. I think all people feel pretty strongly about it one way or another, but they tend to forget that those are their feelings and not everyone else's.

I will say the one good thing about Pman's attitude is that the church people are afraid to come knock on our door. LMAO!

Oh, yeah. It's definitely touchy. I don't really discuss it, and I'm not bringing it to her attention for that reason. I just don't get why people have this desire to make everyone like them. Of course, I'm not very strong in my opinions of the religions themselves. Just in the way people think their way is the only way.

*grins* Pman's smart. Scare 'em away and they'll leave you be. Never a bad thing. ;)
