I have grown from that though and have become a new person. I don't fight with my brother (or other family and friends) anymore, I have plenty of friends, and my view of the world is far different than it used to be. So basically, I was the exact opposite than what you said. I was born into Catholicism, didn't like it, and at the age of 10 turned away from it, along with any form of Christianity. From that time until a couple years later was a real hard time. But I had a revelation and I surrendered it all to God and I have never been better. I never want to go back because I know just how bad it was. So yes, I have been there like others have, so I am very open-minded on this subject.
Your right, and you know what, I'm glad you have found something that makes you happy. Thats all that really matters, is that the person doing it is happy. Had you grown up without deciding for yourself what to do, I would argue differently, however, since you made this decision after seeing both ends of the story, then all I ask is to constantly question what people say, because the only thing that is truly right, is what you believe. I I really thought there was a god, i would try to help as many people see the light as possible, but since I follow this different path, I see it as my duty to help these trapped individuals who have not made there own choices, to question there lives, and find there own path. As you know, I support the teaching of ID in schools. Not because I believe it, but because people have the right and the responsibility to view both ends of the story and reach a comprimise. Don't you agree?
