For me, I am in church when I am on my boat, and I probably thank God for my blessings more often than most. I dont need a building to give thanks or pray, and I dont need someone to talk to God on my behalf to be forgiven my sins. But I dont knock those that do.
As for sam, you have not read some of the spiteful, taunting, and down right mean things she has said to people who have faith. There is/was a thread where people were simply posting that they loved jesus, loved God and loved to pray. Her comments to them was disgusting, and unwarranted. Dont believe me? Use your magical google powers and find that thread and read her posts for yourself.
I'm with Sam on this one. I don't read where she's bashing. Maybe it's hitting too close to home where you're questioning yourself that you jumped on board with how you were raised.
I'll clearly state I am/was Catholic b/c that's what my parents were and how they raised me. I question the faith thing all the time and even go back and forth about the god thing.
When my mother grew up they were taught to never question b/c then you will go to hells-bells b/c you're not a true believer. She was taught that the priest was an extension of god.(Kind of puts in perspective for me how pedophile priests got away with it so long.)
There's room for people to believe, not believe or be in between. To make an observation about something doesn't mean someone is saying YOUR actions were that.
