Using Lord of the Rings quotes to explain my stance on religion? How nerdy can I get?

Posted on February 8, 2011 at 2:32pm 0 Comments

When I was growing up, my mum, who had been raised Catholic, still talked quite a lot about all things religious. She wasn't devout anymore; her mother had died when my mum was 15. Her one goal after that was to go to Heaven so she could see her mother again. But then someone told her that in Heaven you don't recognize people that you used to know. My mum then figured that there was no point in going to Heaven if she couldn't see her mother again, and mostly gave up her faith. I always…

Hello from British Columbia

Hello there. My name is Lisa, and I`m a 20 year old aspiring comic artist from British Columbia, Canada. I was never raised as very religious, although both my parents come from quote Catholic families. My mum took me to church up until I was 5 years old, but I think she was just going out of habit. She told me that she lost her faith when her own mother died, when my mum was 15. My dad is from Italy, and as a child there he went to a horrible Catholic school, where they were abused and…See More
