Hey guys, I'm new and would like to know more about the site and such.
I'm from a rural, close minded town in Montana. Everybody here is Christian (but me, two friends, and the boyfriend). It's sometimes difficult when you're in high school, and people have: put holy water in my water bottle, shoved bibles into my locker, or just flat out ignore my exsisence.
People around these parts are nuts. Once in my Biolagy class, while going through our text books, a girl switched into a different class. Why? "These books are laced with Darwinism!" Or when asked in history, " what would make the world a peaceful place?' "having no religion" i answered, ready to back myself up. Then in came out. " if there were no religion, people would have no morals! i hope you know youre going to hell!" replied a girl.
it's starting to be whatever though. I have 2 years left, then I'm out of this "Holy Town". I'm tired of all the bullshit religion is. I think religion was created to ease the mind because there were questions we didnt yet know how to answer. Well, now we have answers, and proof behind them. Suck it.
