That's fine with me. People have different beliefs. But what you said seemed to go beyond indifference.
"I associate god with being slapped to get on my knees and pray, to being forced to listen to fire and brimstone sermons from as young an age as I can remember, with right wing fundamentalist busy-bodies. God to me means organized religion and I hate organized religion, though I will sometimes attend a unitarian service. "
I love God. It wouldn't have felt right to say nothing, you know? When God was being associated with the bad works of man? Wouldn't you say something should someone say something like that about analysis or therapy or something you felt strongly about as a positive influence in your life?
