I went to church this morning
So, I went to church this morning... Daughter's confirmation and whatnot. First time back since I finally admitted to myself that I didn't believe.

The band opened up with a fantastic instrumental of the Beatles' Come Together. How appropriate, I thought.

I just wanted to let you know that I love you even though you aren't naked right now. Heart

It is definitely an odd feeling walking into church after you admit to yourself that you no longer believe. I just remember thinking to myself while the pastor was doing his thing--How could I have believed all this????? I just remember looking at all the other church members and feeling like I knew something that they didn't.

Someone just said "the simple minded come to Jesus first. It's much harder for someone who is intelligent." They said the word "intelligent" as though it were an insult or maybe something to be pitied.

Yeah, well *thinking* is traditionally looked down upon in the church. Church members are called sheep for a reason.

They should have played John Lennon's "Imagine."

You're not off as far as you'd think.....

What rational mind comes up with the idea of sticking a dead guy in a box - and burying it in the ground.

What do they think they're going to fucking do -- sprout?????

True--but I have to say I do like the idea of irish wakes. We have done that for a few of my relatives.
