There's nothing wrong with going to a church, especially cathedrals, if it's not to grovel or underwrite it with a contribution. The stained glass and architecture can be beautiful, and I have always enjoyed the hymns and the choir.Exactly. I guess the low IQ spambot has difficulties with theists and atheists can be happy together.
Wifey isn't much on church anyways just likes to go twice a year for the show more than anything I think lol!
I sit there for the hour smiling at the nonsense and off we go :)
We participate in a few of the Mexican religious holidays, especially Palm Sunday, when we follow an actor playing Jesus as he enters town. The ground is covered in alfalfa http://www.mexico-insights.com/judysblog/imag... and we're all carrying branches of fresh rosemary, chamomile, and swords and the like made of palm leaves: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_XdQnoyxoD5Q/SeJSoWl... and we sing hosannas.
Five days later, on good Friday, they scourge Jesus as he drags his cross through the streets, another community event that we like to be there for: http://0.tqn.com/d/gomexico/1/0/s/F/-/-/passi...
And our home is filled with religious art by Mexican artists, including a wall of crosses made of ceramics, wood, and tin http://www.flickr.com/photos/nicemarmot/26353... . St. Francis graces our garden, with an modern,stylized statue of the Virgen on a pedestal. Also, we have a huge Tree of Life with Adam and Eve http://www.angelfire.com/mo3/pbgardenclub/tre... and a Noah's Ark full of animals http://www.angelfire.com/mo3/pbgardenclub/ark... both by Sergio Bustamante.
Why not? As the song says, it's all too beautiful! Just leave the superstition, dogma, ritual, mythology and magical thinking at the door.
