8. Welcome to OUR congregation my child.
My kids are being raised to have the freedom to decide for themselves and get straight answers from both sides.

I'm a Church of Christ preacher turned atheist years ago. I gave religion a harder try than most people, but I never was able to sense any great spirit in the sky. Also haven't seen any ghosts, leprechans, fairies, demons, etc. I've just come to accept that some things will never be answered, injustices will always be with us, and that one can live morally and peacefully without an intangible deity.
