One response to “Athiest ‘Found Common Ground with Religion’”

    Funny thing. 

    The worse things get on the outside, the more I’m drawn to my good memories of faith.

    Since I don’t want to accentuate what I’m not, I consider myself to be a free thinker.

    As such, it is alright within my vision to be comforted by those aspects of the season that still hold meaning for me.

    A few years back, I bought a small carved set of figures that depict the nativity.

    It comforts me to have them on my mantlepiece at Christmas time.

    So, that’s the way that is.

    We need more mental health. We need more grace.

    We need less strident, doctrinaire thought.
