So, I've been noticing a lot of talk on this site about the general idea of God. Personally, I try to stay out of this (especially from what happened in a stream I used to attend), but I would like to speak for myself. I grew up in a Christian family, my mom being very bible loving and having 2 baptist pastors in the family. As a kid, I would go to Sunday School and Christan camp on a regular basis. It wasn't until I was around 14 until I actually started questioning my own religion, and completely left religion after reading The Bible. Since then I've been switching back and forth between Atheism and Agnosticism. I am currently Agnostic (which means you aren't completely sure that there is a deity), and I have been so for a year now, which is the longest time I've had a religious label I've had since I was a Christian. I have learned to love the free will you have when you aren't apart of religion rather than worry about a deity "sending you to hell" just because I'm gay, or because I like to eat shrimp. And if I do end up dying and there is a God and a afterlife, that same God is all loving right? So, I have nothing to worry about.
Enough funny contradictions, lets get on to my mixed relationship. So, I try not to be a militant person as I once was anymore and I feel that in some situations especially this one, I have succeed. My current boyfriend is Christian himself and we have had no problems whatsoever with it. One of the things that I hate is militant people (both Atheists and Christians mainly) that judge there mate on beliefs. There is a reason it's called a belief and it should never be forced under any circumstance. Now when it comes to marriage, I do really want to get married someday. Marriage to me means more than us being "under holy matrimony". It means more than a priest or pastor reading out from The Bible. Marriage is a commitment to be together forever. I know there are divorce but if you take a look at divorce in America, it's more about money and pointless objects. I am almost positive that the divorce rate of a true married couple that is divorced for other reasons is very low. Love to me is (for the most part) unconditional.
