I was taught very great morals by my mother and the bible, but when I became brave enough to say who I am my church family turned me away. Now let me take a break from talking about me. I want to know if we have faith and believe in God, Creator, Allah, Shiva, Yahweh, Oshun,or any god/goddess Why is there war taken in name of "God and country"? Why is the separation of church and state not a practice?
I'm so tired of politics and religion being in bed together. I'm tired of fanatics = A person filled with excessive single-minded zeal, especially for a extreme religious or political cause outweighing what seems to me to be the way the world is trying to go. Now what this all have to do with faith? If you have faith in what you believe in, is it your job to make that belief law? We all are different, we all believe in different things, we have faith in our convictions and it is that faith that keeps us going. I know this may not make sense or maybe I'm just ranting but I would love to live where there is real freedom not where someones faith in there religion can affect the lives of everybody in this country, which was founded on religious freedom among other things. Why is it that if a religion is not mainstream it is labeled pagan when it's probably older than the more popular religions? Back to my story, accepting people it took awhile so much bias to get past but I get the look when I say I'm spiritual why? I refuse to be defined and to most that is a problem.
