I was a quiet child, I was a quiet teen, and now I am forming into a quiet adult. I may not talk but I am by no means submissive. I am tired of a lot of things that this generation is alright with, but I am by no means old fashioned.
I am an artist and yes, my art has always been about the delusions of the church. My art teacher senior year would not allow me to make my portfolio about what it was-the clashing beliefs between religion and science. But it's what I am attracted to, it's what I am passionate about. I grew up in a very Catholic family, but the thing is, in a religious family, you can't challenge anything. But with the rest of the world, challenging is important, it's vital to learning, to education. And my conflict lies there, in that drop of all of this. Why can't we challenge? Why can't we ask why? Why can't we investigate?
Would that really lead to doubting? And why is that so wrong?
Why are you here?
I come from a very religious family. When I met my fiance, it was extremely refreshing to talk about anything, and not get silenced. He's an atheist you see, and I really just love the openness to everything. I am here, because there's a freedom here, you can talk about anything and debate, and there's no god shoving down your throat and up your ass.
The religion you left
