Luckilly I was never really deeply indoctrinated into a religion like that.
But even still I needed something that was a little more honest.

6. They Are Tired of Pretending

Some segments of Christianity suggest that being a Christian removes all struggle from life


where they teach that at? ive never heard it..but ive noticed those who are not Christ followers think thats what we learn. heck the bible itself says it aint easy..LOL well...if this is what they're teaching these days...im glad i got in before the sugarcoating.

No it doesn't.  Not saying that this article is definitive but he touches on great points on the incompatibilities of religion and science:

Spirituality not religion because religion is usually dogmatic and becomes a very rigid system.

I was forced to go for so long, and in the summers with my grandma at them tent revivalsStern Smile, when I was old enough to say no thank you I felt free. To be honest it was free to do all the things the Bible said not to do but in my mind free. 

It was soooo strict COGIC and when I would ask questions the only answer I got was " You don't question God" which in my mind was equivalent to because I said so which never made sense to me so I quit going. 

They was really ready to perform an exorcism when I voiced looking into other religions so I moved away from them and did my own thing.

When the priest was preaching about loving thy neighbor and the sermon took a homophobic turn.




At the BFs parents' church when the pastor was preaching about the Wall of Jericho and uttered "The Israelites had to learn what we know today, never negotiate with terrorists." The sermon took a racist teabag turn. 



I am now a  Humanist/Holiday Catholic.

Indeed, This...

However, Christianity teaches morals and I did want my son to learn this.
With the church (---morals--- some learn from home)... it did not hurt me growing up(church).
My son will choose is own path-- and he does go to a christian preschool (only pubic edu. / magnet schools next-- like his daddy).
