Does anyone here ever reconsider going back to their childhood religion and why?

I left religion (Catholic) when I was twelve, they wanted me to teach the younger kids catacism. It was then I relalized I couldn't spout the party line to them. I felt it was hollow. However, I have found that certain ideas have stayed with me, like loving on another, taking care of everyone, that every one is equal and deserves respect. I just was unable to become a hypocrite.


Nope, been there, done that and i'll NEVER return to LA LA land again !!!!!


Not bloody likely!

No. I was raised Methodist and when I was very young figured out the entire system was based on less then truth as their lessons often were in contradiction with reality. I figured "Church" was a place adults take children so scare them into doing what the adults wanted them to do. Years later I was horrified to realize many church going adults never grew up and actually believed their largely nonsensical fairytale stories as truth.


Feck no!

Why would you put the shackles, blinkers and earplugs back on?


No, not even if I decided I did believe in a god after all.


Heck no! Why would I miss being told I'm of less worth than a man? Being told to be ashamed of my body? Being told what I can and can't do? Being told that my attractions to women are evil? Being threatened with eternal punishment? I'm glad I dodged that bullet!

No, I don't believe in Santa Claus or the Tooth Fairy either.
