I really need to rant; I’ve been missing tumblr. I was raised in a devote catholic family. I went to church every Sunday until the age of 10 when my mom decided to go back to school to get her doctorate in nursing theory. Ever since then, I’ve 100% lost faith. At this point in my life, I have no personal connection to a god because I have never actually had one, and also cannot bring my highly analytical brain to the thought that some “god” could have created us. But, I respect people of the Christian faith. I am friends of Mormons, Lutherans, Christians, and Catholics, etc. I respect their beliefs and expect them to respect mine. But, my family is a different situation. I respect their beliefs, but they have little to no respect for mine. In their opinions, I OWE them the belief in god because they spent countless hours taking my brother and I to church. I call complete stupidity on that. I owe my parents nothing in the area of religion. I am my own conscious person who has my own thoughts and beliefs that I can formulate with MY brain in MY noggin. They quite offensively reject the fact that I have my own sense of self and believe that religion is the basis for social principles.
The whole point of this is that I do not believe that RELIGION makes you a KIND person. There are rude Mormons, Lutherans, Catholics, Buddhists, etc. yes, there are also rude atheists. But, my spiritual belief doesn’t contribute to my level of kindness. I am tired of that theory.
If I ever have kids, I swear I will be the parent that would support my kid no matter what. I would expose them to EVERY religion, and let them believe in whatever they want to believe in once they are old enough to have a sense of self. I wouldn’t make them go to church, but I would support them if they told me they wanted to. I would be the parent who would take him/her to church because I do not CARE AT ALL what they would believe in. I only care about what kind of person they would be. I would raise him/her to be a DECENT PERSON; with or without religion. Religion doesn’t equal decency, and decency doesn’t mean you are religious. I hope my parents accept that, because I’m only 14 and I accept it. Everyone should.
