I was raised as a Catholic and I will explain what it meant to me. The brainwashing begins at a very young age. It all starts with the Christening reserved for infants or babtism for others, usually at a later age. I would tell you about my Christening, but it's something I can't remember. It was sort of like an induction into the church.
A few years later they send you to Sunday school (which was actually on a Saturday) or catechism. Around the age of 5 or 6 we went to this class and…Continue
I grew up in a family that went to church on holidays and said grace before meals, so you could say we weren't the strictest Christian family, we just worshipped when it was most convenient. From a early age I always questioned everything especially religion! It was always so frustrating when I asked a question and the only answer I ever seemed to get was, "That is the way the lord wants it." I always thought that was one bogus excuse of an answer.
One day I even asked my mom why God…Continue
Without god(s) to tell me who to hate and who to love, I have to find my own way.
These are my values.
"Judge not least.."
Nope. Wrong again.
For those of you that spread pain, I judge you.
Not by skin color. Not by ancestry. Not by blood or body type.

Jawshack.com/blog/spirituality-in-creativity/ - This is a link to my own blog. I just really prefer the formatting at my Wordpress. I would love to hear your thoughts, as so far the only comments are from my mom who "didn't understand parts" and from a preacher defending the resurrection as being true beyond all doubt.
Also, yay, just joined an atheist website! Any other musicians in Los…Continue
This is a part of my memoire, and one of my most powerful personal arguments against the existence of God. It details a newborn infant fighting desperately for her life and her victory, not through a god, but through humanity and lucky chance.
That night of November 20th, my grandmother made dinner and Rob and Grampa and I sat down anxiously awaiting news. The news came late into the night. I wasn’t…Continue

We're all pagans, Dionysians, Kemetics, polydiests, or combination of the four. Oh, and one very open minded Christian. So, it's not your gang of folks and subject…Continue
On September 11, 2001 I was 12-years old. The same age [ironically] of many of the fundamentalist muslim child brides in the middle east. I was had just "graduated" from grade school at Ayer Elementary School and was beginning my education as a 7th grader at Nagel Middle School.
The day started out so ordinary as to be unnerving.
Most of my memory of my childhood is foggy... but this day... I shall never forget. I can see it as clearly now [nearly a decade later] as I…Continue

As I put my career in professional theatre temporarily aside (populated by a generally liberal and socially tolerant demographic) and toward politics, I came to realize that while my own…Continue
