      to our neighborhood just scary looking young men. I really don't like missionaries. Though out history they seem to reek havoc and pain where ever they seek to spread their fanatical vision of God. Sects, cults and most organized religions especially the evangelical ones, are to me the dark, fearful, authoritarian  of human.  They seem globally to be on the rise

      I was raised a Catholic and they threw me out of the rich girl's boarding school my parents had put me in, for being a bad influence and a heretic. I dared to argue in religion class and did not think men would be driven to sin by the sight of my scrawny arms or legs. The nuns sent us out  to go door to door and collect money to 'save the pagan babies'. I was in the 8th grade and even then knew that this was totally insane. My sympathy lay with the poor pagan babies who had to deal with this sick cult's view of life on earth.

      I was into Camus,Simone De Beauvoir, Zen and humanist history, a danger to the world vision of the Irish Dominican nuns who daily boxed my ears with erasers and told me I was going to hell. 'What do we hate girls?' the religion teacher Sister Fatima would ask. We girls were all supposed to yell 'SIN'. I thank God that I resisted and used my God given mind to reject this sick version of humans, nature and the wonderful, amazing universe we inhabit.

      Sorry to go off here..  but seems the dark is swallowing the light these days... and at least I can keep my porch clear of these zombies. whichever sex or cult they represent...
