Do you think world would be more peaceful place to live without any religion ?
and who is to be the judge of what the 'bad' bits are....bring in the scalpel by all means but im pretty sure what you think needs to be 'cut out', others will see as the good that needs to stay. For me, ill be the judge thanks. I am the only one who can make these decisions for me. And i am the one wholey affected by my own beliefs. Relgion is not my cuppa tea as i am capable of making good decisions for me and mine. Spirtuality is my cup. To lovening look over all rules, traditions, celebrations, rituals etc and find those that sit well with me. Those that allow me to live the loving, open life i want to live. You guys are welcome to sort it out for yourselves......just allow me to do the same. If i make a mistake then please allow me the graceousness to correct my own way, i will as soon as i see things arnt going the way id like. Share your love, support, caring, kindness and all the other wonderful parts of your human ness. But please dont presume to know what is right for me. Only I, as an intellengent and worthwhile human being can know what is right for me. And a loving God, as i understand God, is the only god im interested in.

Brené Brown: The power of vulnerability
inter dependence is what we are wanting not co dependence.....co dependence is extremely damaging and keeps people stuck. Co dependence leads to many others issues including addiction and dysfunctional families. Inter dependence is what will protect us and encourge us to be individuals thriving in well adjusted communities.
