Religionship

 Last month, relationships were a hot topic on Love over Religion.  I examined Humanism as it relates to Christianity and was provided some wonderful insights by my readers. (Thank you!) I also discussed the very peculiar relationship of Jesus and his followers which, per the Bible, is one of betrothment. We even drew some comparisons […]

UnHitched

  “If you leave me, you’re worthless.” “No matter how hard you try to be good, you’ll never be good enough.” “Don’t be proud of any of your accomplishments. If not for me, you’d be a nobody.” “You have to put me first, before anything or anyone else.” “If you don’t marry me, I will […]

Come to think of it, since my departure from organized religion I’ve heard that I worship a […]

Who were the Sun Gods?

A virgin gave birth to a baby who was both god and human. He was born on December 25th, and he came to bring light to the darkness of the world. He was Horus, and Egyptian records show he lived, died and was resurrected at least 5,000 years before Christ. Horus was just one of […]
