Friday Five

1. Were you raised in a par­tic­u­lar reli­gious faith?
I was raised very deep-water South­ern Bap­tist. We went to church every time the doors were open, which is a LOT in an SB congregation.

2. Do you still prac­tice that faith? Why or why not?
No. I was get­ting in trou­ble for ques­tion­ing incon­sis­ten­cies before I was 10. I tried, very hard, to under­stand my par­ents’ reli­gion. I stud­ied the Bible and var­i­ous the­olo­gians and prayed for guid­ance and tried to “just have faith” and it sim­ply did­n’t work for me. I final­ly left the church com­plete­ly in my ear­ly 20s, and lat­er found myself drawn to pagan­ism and then Uni­tar­i­an Universalism.

3. What do you think hap­pens after death?
I don’t have enough infor­ma­tion to have an opinion.

4. What is your favorite reli­gious rit­u­al (par­tic­i­pat­ing in or just observing)?
Well, I like Imbolc, and Beltane is lots of fun, as well. But my reli­gion is less about rit­u­al and cal­en­dars than about a way of living.

5. Do you believe peo­ple are basi­cal­ly good?
I believe most peo­ple are born that way, but obvi­ous­ly, some don’t stay that way.
