Most people reading this who know me in real life just went...huh? Out of total confusion.
Let's be clear. I don't really have one.
I was baptized Episcopalian and it just about ended there. Any services I go to these days (limited to Christmas and Easter) are Catholic, as my Dad, Stepmom, and two youngest siblings are Catholic.
Recently I took an online quiz about which religion I should be.
Cause ya know, that's the best way to figure out these major life things.
Online quizzes and such.
Any-hoo, the results came in and it was a resounding:
Evidently I love everyone!
I mostly try to operate my life under a few simple principles, which happen to align with the principles of most religions.
Be a good person.
Do your best.
(Alright, I sounded a little bit like a raging hippie there)
That being said, I love reading blogs written by religious women.
Has anyone else noticed the abundance of LDS bloggers? I sure have. And you know what? I really enjoy reading about their views and beliefs. In fact, I think I probably enjoy it more simply because it is different from what I believe. And I always enjoy the abundance of modest fashion they contribute to the blogosphere.
I've also read a lot about Islam. I was one of the few avid viewers of the show All-American Muslim. Previously it was definitely the religion I knew the least about but I figured, if this is what 22% of the world believes, I should know a little bit about it. Note: It's about the same number of people as Buddism and Hinduism combined.
And boy do I love me some Sister Wives. Funny thing is, their lifestyle doesn't bother me one bit.
To each their own, you know? If it makes you happy, go for it.
Chances are, it doesn't affect my life in any way.
And really, don't most human beings want the same thing?
To love and be loved.
To live happy and fulfilling lives.
So there you go.
My views on religion.
Do you have strong religious views? I'd love to read about them.
