I did attend Lutheran Church when I was little. My parents were not religious. My father definitely wasn't. He was a ufologist & put more stock in aliens & the return of the Annunaki & all that theory. My mother never came off as religious but she did start attendin' my ol' Lutheran Church after my father left & prior to meetin' her next husband, years after I stopped attendin' services. She eventually stopped goin' because her 2nd husband is an atheist. No one in my family ever pressured me into any of their views.

Anyways, I have studied the majority of religions out there. Mayhaps I was lookin' for answers or mayhaps I just like studyin' taboo shit. Either way, it is nice to know how to cripple any religious discussion with the faith-based. The church I attended didn't convince me of any divine presence. I definitely didn't feel the hocus pocus of the Holy Ghost. Jesus, some damn angel definitely wasn't lookin' over me. All it ever appeared to be was a bunch of morals written into some fantastic story of impossibilities. Nothin' more.

Yep, that's it. I was never really fooled into the bullshit. Not everyone is born a sucker.
