The best of all faiths should be valued. A person once said about looking for church value in this way: "Don't go and dig 10 6 foot wells looking for water. Just dig one 60 foot well and the chances of get water are much greater."

The past has value and is the base for the future. One does not start over. One continues forword. Working on the relationship makes it happen for the both of you.

Excellent discussion Frema, we all need to value the positive parts of our lives whether the part that involves religious experience or not. Threatening tales of demons and the devil only creates a Hell on Earth.

I am sure that our grandchidren are in good hands.

And I have a wife whom I am both proud and happy to be with.

Frema girl, I have been there. I know exactly how you feel. Catholicism just wasn't for me anymore. My parents have finally accepted my decision and support my involvement as well as my son's. You'll make the right choices.

I am glad you decided to share your journey through all of this. It's very important for all of us, no matter what religion we are, to stop and look at who we are, what we believe, and why every once and a while. If we never became uncomfortable, we would not make very much progress. We all know you're not a Catholic basher. Just a girl on a mission to find the right blend of religion to settle down in. And you will. :0)

Why have a religion at all? just be happy with yourself! you made great choices so far, do you REALLY think you will go to hell? Is there a hell? no one knows for sure. Let your kids grow up and decide what religion they want to be for themselves.
just a thought. (and that would kill the beast for sure!)
Auntie Di (from the other side)

Well thoughout and thoughtfully said.

I know you and Luke will be wonderful parents. I've told you before and I'll tell you again how much I admire the fact that you two are looking so closely at religion. Your unborn children are so blessed! ;)
