I guess it's hard for me to believe that people believe in god. I know they do, I just don't know why they do. It's a concept that has only negative connotations for me.

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?
