“Isn’t it great to be in a room where you can say whatever you want to whomever you want without fear of anyone criticizing you for being unorthodox?
She also has never once told me that I’m going to hell.
When I was a kid, my mother and I joined a very large "non-denominational" Christian Church, one of the earliest versions of the Mega Churches that exist today. I was in the children's choir, the community was lovely, and we sang from a song book with drawings of long-haired hippies.
Everything was great until politics began to creep in and the church began hosting speakers like Jerry Falwell, the ultraconservative pastor and political pundit.
Eventually i proposed and on May 11th 2013 we were married. In most aspects of our relationship, though, it pretty much seems secular – which scares me.
The wedding was fairly inexpensive for us yet turned out very very nice just what my wife wanted when initially she was ready to get married without a wedding… Because there’s no Jesus talk, worship, anything like that, and then when we talk about religion, it’s an entire 180 – outrageous claims, I talk to god, I feel his presence, blah blah.
