religion 1 by daniellemasucci religion 1 by daniellemasucci
this is a very personal series for me. it was a way for me to vent my frustrations with religions in general, but with a strong focus on the catholic religion i was made to adopt as a child. it is about the frustration and hypocrisy i saw when i was in church, catechism, confirmation. the fear, anger, intolerance. i have always felt chained by religion, and my faith was drawn out of fear from the hands of an angry god, fear of that which i cannot control. when i grew older and it became clear to me that i had no faith in any higher power, any diety, the chains tightned. i grew up in conservative/religious pocket of southern california. it is not cool to be an atheist, but i have never been cool, so i do not know why that bothered me. but when the subject of religion came up i never really gave a straight answer. i somehow convinced myself that i would not be accepted for this difference, even though apparantly it was pretty obvious to those who really knew me. but i am proud now. of who i am , and what i do and do not belive in. i am not scared or ashamed. if people don't like me or want to hire me because i do not fit exactly into the mold they want me to, then they do not matter.

Any form of religion is just an obstacle.

I'm sorry you've had bad experiences with religion, Catholicism in particular. What kind of stuff happened that made you feel that way? (No, I'm not trying to shove religion down your throat, just curious. I've got an atheist friend, and he's pretty cool).
