I'll try to explain, though I don't intend to stay on the faith board too long. I should not have inferred that my experience with the Catholic church was the only reason I don't look for truth in organized religion, what it was was that my experience with it, caused me to look at institutions of religion in a different way.

I don't have a problem with God, or with Jesus or with other religions
I have a problem with what has been done to women, and to natives, to homosexuals in the name of of God. I feel that there is an innate truth in the symbolism of modern religion and ancient spirituality that transcends
mankinds current concretization of good and evil, I think love transcends that, I think kindness does.
I think it's of like the blind man and the elephant, everyone has a piece of the truth and thinks they are describing the entire experience. I don't have a need to learn to judge people, or to hate, or to convert someone to my beliefs. I don't think my God thinks that way. My god doesn't worry about Churches or correct names, or spelling, or male or female. I think that is more all too human judgement, the values of the time, being reflected in religious text.
