up against religion

Ya, sometimes this is how I feel. Little David with a pebble up against an ancient giant!You know, that church building represents religion, and I meet plenty of negative religion outside of church walls as well. In fact, some of the most ferociously religious people I've met have been outside the church.The kind of religion I'm up against is the kind that taunts and degrades people, attempts to control them, manipulates them and shames them, that limits rational thought, critical thinking … [Read more...]

breaking free of the community

Sophia decided she had to make the definitive cut that tied her to the constrictive and controlling community. With one decisive swing of the axe, she separated herself and set herself apart.

pitfalls after leaving the church
