I am 100% with you, Jules. I am no expert when it comes to talking about religion — I have never even read a bible! Seeing one in a hotel drawer actually creeps me out. I grew up a non practicing Jew (whatever that really means), and neither of my parents mentioned “God” as far as I can remember. We didn’t say little prayers before we went to bed, and as a matter of fact, when my girls were little, I avoided those children’s books or skipped over the god part.

Like you, I see gods everywhere and don’t buy into the one god thing. I actually can’t conceive that some of the smartest people I know actually believe that they are going to heaven and I am going to hell because I haven’t accepted Jesus. To me, that is plain and simple ignorance. I’m sorry if I’m offending anyone, but I think it’s even more offensive that people tell me that I’m a “sinner.” Pleeeaaasse. You cheated on your wife and had sex with a goat and yet I’m going to hell and you’re going to heaven because you’re a believer?!?! Give me a break.
