| Erisah Mae chapter 1 . 11/11/2009
This was really good- and man do I know what you mean. I used to be Catholic, and then my parents divorced. Mum didn't go back to church because she felt that it would be hypocritical as since she hadn't been able to stick it out "forever" with her abusive husband then the Church wouldn't approve of her. My dad went back though. And to my knowledge no one even batted an eye, because she left him.
So the message I got from that was that if you're a woman and you decide that you want to be free from the hell on earth of an abusive relationship, then if you seek to leave that relationship, then you're going to hell. No questions asked. No grey areas. The perfect Catch 22.
Well screw that. I thought that then and I thought that now. If having faith means having to torture myself for the "crime" of not being the "perfect" miserable housewife with eight children and no prospects, being someone who isn't me and never will be, then why is it supposed to be a good thing?
Ah the beauties of Agnosticism.
