  •  Am a Christian... sort of... (21+ / 0-)

    Raised in a Christian church, mainstream protestant variety.. my first husband "discovered" his second wife at the church we were active in.  Don't blame that on the church... however, the support this emotionally devastated mother of two small children got from that congregation was... Zilch.  Nada.  I left crying one day when he came walking in with his new girlfriend, while still married to me.  Never heard another word from anyone.  So much for organized religion for me ... 40 years ago.

    A few years later I met a wonderful man.. who was not much into any kind of organized religion, and he was the most Christian person I ever knew.  

    I can't even identify with the so called religious folks we see today.  My born again brother drives my nuts.  Can't see how un Jesus like his politics are.  (Sure not the Jesus I heard about in church growing up.)  Another brother converted to Catholocism years ago, and prays and worries about my now departed second husbands soul.  

    I have a slight, very slight glimmer of hope... for the new Pope, who seems to have read the same New Testiment that I read those many years ago.

    Sorry this is so long, I just had to deal with my brothers at Thanksgiving and you diary hit a raw nerve I guess.
