I was born into a family who had no strong religious beliefs, then by chance started going to Sunday school led by a group of Christians. They taught me to feel guilt and shame then finally abused me. It was years later after drug addiction and mental health problems I finally was able to deal with the trauma I had been put through by this group and now live a fruitful productive life, free from religious dogma. For me religion did poison everything.
When you're chewing on life's gristle Don't grumble, give a whistle And this'll help things turn out for the best... And...always look on the bright side of life... Always look on the light side of life. - Monty Python's Life of Brian
