I guess what I say is amusing.Sunday, November 28, 2010 12:08
Baptismal clothes aren’t that important to me. My children would wear them all of once.
Selecting spiritual godparents aren’t that important to me. I only have one good friend who is of the same religion as James’ paternal family, and I couldn’t select her to be my sons’ godmother even if I wanted to go through with this — she has never been confirmed. If anything, the majority of my friends aren’t anything more than… tolerant of such devout religion to begin with, so I would have an extremely difficult time finding anyone on my side who was even willing to do it and an even harder time finding someone whose core values were not contradictory of the shebang. If anything, this right here spells disaster.
First communion isn’t that important to me. I’m not a big fan of letting a child sip alcohol…
Doctrine is only as important to me as it can apply to my everyday life free of religion. Not always a good person does religion make, and not always a bad person does the lack of indoctrinated religion form. When doctrine impedes the health and quality of life of either my two sons or me, it stops right there and I’m not listening to anything else it has to say about that subject from that point forward. Our physical health is more important to me.
I can get along to go along with religion, but not when I am being shoved face-first into it.
