It seems every one is talking about it,so I thought it would be interesting to see what you all have to say! I was raised by a some what christian mom and an athiest stepfather whom has since found belief in an higher power. I have attended many different churches and learned very little! See everyone reads the Bible and each gets something totally different out of it. Like the whole "Sister Wives" thing, there are men in the Bible that had this belief but by man's law it is wrong! How about teaching our children that being gay is an abombanation to God but in the same belief tell them God will forve them for all thier sins!!?! As parents what are we supposed to teach them? I have always told my children that the Bible is a retelling of events that happened and when they feel the push from god to read it ,they will! I took my children to church for a while and to my surprise they liked it ,for a while. See as a interracial family we were treated differently and during my time as nursey manager i witnessed many instances of child abuse. I reported it to my boss and to my surprise nothing was done! I took this problem to her the second time and, reminded her as a childcare provider she was obligated by law to repot it! I did the right thing according to the beliefs I had been taught and in that church I was fired!!! So is the end near? With so many conflicting issues in religon who do we believe!?! Me, I listen to my heart and do what it tells me because in my family God is in your heart and as long as you believe in him you are free!
