All people in all religious cults believe that their gods or goddesses give them "heads-up" treatment. If that were not so, they would not be in the cults.<quoted text>haven't you figured it out yet? your not catholic so you don't matter,like me,if you don't belong to "the church" (snicker) you can't get into heaven,it's true, the pope said so,and he is infallible in devine teachings.
Having been under the spell of religion, I understand that it was a cosy, fuzzy feeling to believe that the all-powerful god was a friend on which I could always rely.
But the extreme suffering of non-human forms of life added to all human suffering niggled at me, until I finally decided that religion didn't make any sense whatsoever, and that there had to be a more credible explanation.
