    I respect those who choose not to be. I respect and understand other's resentments towards "organized religion" because I share many of the same peeves. I've written elsewhere that I have atheist friends who I stand with as we serve the underprivileged and downtrodden in OUR community. These are some of the finest people I've ever met and they are truly a blessing in mine and my family's life. We have mutual respect because of our actions and shared interests. I also know some who consider themselves devout who (IMHO)
     aren't worth a bucket of warm piss. I'm not into defending religion, organized or otherwise, because I've never been so egotistical as to believe that I could. Or that my faith could be effectively defended. It is mine and no one else's. Enlightenment, the process of becoming more connected to, and considerate of those around us, has many paths. Never mattered to me, and I don't think it should to anyone, how people get there. So long as we shuffle down that path as best we can. Anyone who knew me would never think that I would want to control anyone else's actions or help to pass laws that would do so. My faith is mine alone. I do not EVER push it on others. I hope this doesn't come across as me attempting to do so. I'm only trying to encourage people to take a chance on knowing someone whom you vehemently disagree with on the subject of your choice. I never thought I'd love a "non believer" and THEY were shocked that we were fellow travelers on the same journey. This post is too long...
