Just going by what I feel...

I had a very interesting discussion with someone recently about "spirituality". She told me that she formed her beliefs on the basis of what she feels.

The dangers of state religion

Imagine a society in which you were forced to affirm things you did not believe, and if you didn't profess such faith you could not be a part of society, or get employment, or you may be forced out of business. That was what it was like for people when the church and state wed and religion was forced upon unbelievers. Non-Christians understandably chaffed under such a yoke, they would protest that they should be free not to participate in things they did not believe in. How good it is to know that the state no longer forces people to profess a faith they don't actually believe in. Things have changed...haven't they?
