As a child, both my religion and my family supplied comfort and safety. Only later did I find out that in place of that comfort and safety was freedom. Everything was predetermined: what I hated, what school I went to, what friends I had. Finally escaping from home, I've learned that people are what makes up this world and that religion fosters prejudice and preconceived notions that left me feeling very lonely as I tried to assimilate into a multicultural society. I'm a firm believer that God did not create religion. God did not create prejudice, sects, and stifling rules that limit one's growth. This country has a double standard. We were supposed to be an enlightened nation, not a Christian nation. Pedofiles go to prison, they don't get switched to another parish. If you have different opinions that your existing religion, just like the Mormons, set up your next religion. I now believe Christian and all the Abrahamic religions were put in place to divide and control people, and not allow us to explore freedom. Any by the way, the Abrahamic religions believe that God created Adam, and Eve was created by the use of Adam’s rib, and that God gave them 2 children, Adam and Eve. If that’s true, where did all the other children come from? There is only one choice in that formula, and its one I choose not to think about.
