I posted this on a religious forum that mywalmart started:
Venganza.org is where I practice most of my religion. Read Gospil of the Flying Spaghetti Monster without a dogmatic attitude. It'll truely open up your mind if you can find the intellect to ignore the dogmatic ways that most people argh raied to believe. This is the only religion that has never led to human slaughter of ANY kind, which is a huge acomplishment considering that NOTHIN HAS CAUSED AS MUCH DEATH AS RELIGION SINCE BEFORE THE RECORDING OF TIME.
I am a Pirate. This is the religion of Pirates. Blessed be the midget, for he is short in stature, thus evidently touched by many of HIS Noodley Apendages.
On a side note: Most phsycologist believe that a persons view of religion has a direct link to their view of their dominant parent (most often their male fathers). I was never able to give my mother very much respect, even though I was "raised" by her & her mother. Her mother was my primary provider & "mentor" (for lack of a better analogy: Batman to my Robin). She never showed much of a need for religion as long as I had known her. She did attend a few Sunday services just before she became immobile & was admitted into a nursing home, though. I though of it as the most independent person I had ever looked up to, reduced to grasping at straws. I was raised in a few different denominations of "southern" Christianity, & even got baptised in the Penacostal chirch I learned to play a drum kit in. As I have been providing for myself for the majority of my life, I am NOT dependant of ANY religion. I don't need to be told that I'm going to H3LL, or to go there just because I lack the need for an ominous imaginary friend that demands my fear, respect, advertising testoment, or anything else.
