<< in freshman english after doing a raise your hand type survey conducted by
the teacher i turned out to be the only one who admitted they didn't go to
church, hadn't been baptized or saved, and wasn't clear on my belief in god
and jesus. that "admission" led me to being told i was going to burn in hell
and also that i was most likely a witch, too. this came from the teacher. i
got a lot of other nasty treatment from other teachers and students, too. i
felt like a pariah. btw, i was a straight a kid who never got in trouble and
tried hard not to be too weird. >>

And to think this nation was founded by people who wanted to escape from
religious persecution!
The right to believe must include the right not to believe or its not a right
at all.IMHO
