  • I was raised Seventh Day Adventist. I can't stand it when people say they are a cult, or that they are vegetarians because eating meat is against their religion. That "cult" threw me a baby shower and gave me everything I needed for my baby when I was single and alone. They didn't care that I was unwed, or anything else for that matter. They were happy for the new baby coming into the world. And they don't eat meat for health reasons, some actually fo eat fish and poultry. Although I do not go to church now, I have very fond memories of the things our church did together, like camping, singing, fishing, visiting nursing homes and playing music, barbeques, beach days, etc.

  • lol i'm christian and people assume i'm going to start quoting the bible or try to convert them. i could care less what other people think about my religion and i don't care what they choose either. i think everyone has the right to choose whatever they think is right.

  • The worshiping the devil or being decieved by such a critter always gets me cuz it is mentioned a lot.

    Cant worship or be decieved by something/someone you dont even believe in.

    How does it make me feel? It makes me giggle and roll my eyes. I used to be there, feeling like anything outside my beliefs was just a deception of satan,etc(cuz my church was the only true church ya know) so I get where its all coming from so I dont hate or get angry at it. I just understand it and giggle cuz, in the end, it doesnt phase me or my life.

  • Oh, sorry, just saw the second part...

    How does it make me feel? It makes me feel like we Pagans have A LOT of work to do! If people are still this uneducated at this day and age, we aren't making enough noise or impacting the world around us in enough positive ways... I'm not saying we should be preaching, just being noticed...
