Theresa Thoden replied to Dan's discussion 'Are there any religions that allow for the beliefs/truth of other religions?'
"Lots of people do... It's also often confused with Unitarian Universalism which probably should have been my first recommendation (now that I think about it). Though Unity includes those who are without belief (particularly in a personal God)…"

Theresa Thoden replied to Dan's discussion 'Are there any religions that allow for the beliefs/truth of other religions?'
"Unity (see http://www.unity.org) churches individually are, for the most part, accepting of all faith traditions or no particular belief tradition at all. They have no dogma or creed, but base their brand of self-exploration/self-mastery on five…"

Theresa Thoden replied to Michael's discussion 'If you are a non- believer, why be moral when no one is looking?'
"The text you included to, I assume, clarify your question and illustrate your perspective points directly to part of the answer I would offer.  I think there's a lot of wisdom there, especially in your last sentence, "...conscience is…"

About Me:
Working up the nerve to "come out" as an atheist to my friends & family, but know how important it is for people in my age group to stand up proud and demonstrate that atheist are healthy, happy, honest, virtuous, compassionate, loving, and constructive members of our society. My peers are the ones who stand in the way of real change. The young get it. The old will leave us unchanged. It's time to start changing minds and getting our house in order to create a tolerant, livable environment for us all.
Age
47-52
Why are you here?
Looking for support, ideas, like-minded friends - same reason we're all here (I'm guessing).
The religion you left
Christian
Why you left your religion.
I can't say I really left "my" religion because I haven't really changed my belief's much. The only "church" I've ever belonged to was Unity - and they don't judge atheists or anyone else, so Unity wasn't anything to run from. I'm standing against religion because of the recent stranglehold it's taken on American culture - drawing a line in the sand and focusing everyone on an "us and them" mentality. As the mother of a lesbian, how - in good conscience - can I sit still while the spouse of a presidential candidate can get on the radio and broadcast his belief that homosexuals are "barbarians" who need to be "disciplined" by "authority figures." It's time for us to end this fascination with defining what's "good" and "moral" and "true" on archaic beliefs that have been disproved by science, reason, observation, experience, and every rational means of evaluation we have. If it looks like a fairy tale, and quacks like a fairy tale... It's a fairy tale.
