I greatly understand. I grew up Catholic for 18 out of 20 years of my life. Yet, I'd hope and even exhort you to never become religious. Why? Because no matter what people might tell you, being a Christian is not some religious experience/church thing. Unfortunately, today's statistics state that 'Christians' live the same type of lives that non-Christians do. Go to any atheist's webpage and hear the whole speal:That said, I highly doubt that I'll ever become religious, I was Catholic/Christian for the first ten years of my life and religion's definately not for me.
"How dare those Christians tell us what to do and how to live our lives when they get divorced the same amount if not more than us!"
When I got saved at age 16, I started distancing myself from contemporary Churchdom. Now, they'd similarly distance themselves from me and my doctrines/views/lifestyle. Maybe it can be a point in matter to find out why that is. I think that you'd discover some interesting facts there.
By the way, where are you from? I'm in Northern New York.
