I haven't been following many threads so much anymore on Babble, but I wanted to tell you something.
I grew up in a community that was very religious of a certain type of religion. I of course didn't belong to any church, because I wasn't brought up with religion, and I was shunned a lot by others even as a child. I wasn't allowed to date others because I didn't belong to their church, some of my friends couldn't even spend the night at my house, and as a young girl, that was huge to have slumber parties. I know what it is like to be in the minority, and I know that sometimes people just don't understand how it feels. They don't even understand that they are being prejudice either.
I personally believe there are fine people of all faiths, but there are also some rotten eggs in all faiths too.
Keep fighting for what you believe in Lou, I admire your stamina, but I will be leaving Babble soon for good, so take care.
