Tonight we had a discussion with a friend who started the conversation by saying she hates labels and boxes. Being labeled an African American so that must mean X. Or a single working mother so that must mean your financial situation is X. Or a lesbian so that must mean your relationships are all X. You get the point.
She lobbed the question - "Wouldn't it be great if there was no religion at all in the world?" If people just were free to be who they are and think what they think.
What about those who get comfort and belonging from religion? This, coming from me, who is not a religious person in the typical sense of the word.
Would it make the world a better place, or just a different place?
