Well, everyone else is doing it, so I may as well jump on the "thoughts on religion" bandwagon. Here's my two cents:

I see wisdom in every religion, even if I am not a part of that religion. It is so fascinating to study this kind of stuff. Keep and open mind, and any religion can give you some kind of wisdom, whether or not you agree with it. 
What is a real shame is that so many people keep their minds closed and fight over the black-and-white mentality of "I'm right and you're wrong!!"; not letting themselves see what these philosophies have to offer. So long as you aren't hurting anyone, follow any belief you love.

For example, I am not a Christian, but Jesus taught a lot of very wise things; loving thy neighbor and helping your fellow human. I am not a Buddhist, but Siddhartha and the Dalai Lama taught us about grounding ourselves and coming to terms with mortality. Even Satanism -- the most misunderstood religion on Earth -- teaches us about respect and equality of the sexes, even if they are unorthodox. I am a nature-worshiping Wiccan, and I say "An it harm none, do what ye will."
It is healthy to respectfully disagree and offer up a discussion with anything, but I put emphasis on the word "respectfully." So don't shove your beliefs down others' throats. Instead, consider the philosophy, even if it seems strange to you.

There's radicals in any group, including mine (I'm looking at YOU, Silver RavenWolf!). Don't let the bad eggs spoil the bunch. The only learning mind is an open mind.

Artist | Student | Traditional Art

Hello, devies. The name's Carolyn. I'm just an ordinary California girl with a deep passion to the Wiccan faith. I am also a proud lesbian and I participate in many Gay Rights festivals and gatherings.
Becoming a studio artist is my motive in life. I study hard into all kinds of art forms, from pastels to ceramics, though my main focus is pencil and ink mediums.
