I Have The Right
To Be Confused
This is my first email to positive atheism. I would like help in finding others who feel the same way that I do. I was ever brought up with religion, my mother believes in god and my father, well he just doesn't care. I have a grandmother who claims to be a Christian but she more sounds like a hypocrite, and she tells me I'm going to hell for not believing. As I've hit my early twenties I'm faced with religion and I do not believe or disbelieve, which I think that I have that right but so many people tell me I'm stupid for this, and that it's heaven or hell so pick, my response to these people is, #@%$ you, I have the right to be confused. Sometimes I feel alone in this world, I'm not a bad person and or some kind of devil worshipper but by not believing in god and or belonging to some kind of religious organization I will be placed in a bad category by others. I hope by finding others who feel the same I can get in sight as to where I do belong.
