When you strip away the fantasy there is much wisdom. Many people lose out on this aspect of religion because they don't want to become indoctrinated into relying on false hope to function but anyone secure in their own beliefs has no such fears

Christin, I did REALLY loved making a "May Altar" with a cigar box and blue silk fabric and artificial lilies of the valley. I loved putting the little votive light there and the little statue of Mary. Glad you brought that to mind:) (You're sweet).
Great answer. One of the reasons I asked the question is to show religious people that they maybe straying from the important things about religion when they engage in extremism and intolerance.
Christin, I agree with you, including the part about music. People find it odd an atheist like me loves carols and hymns but I do! Also, I too would often like to believe, but wishing something to be true and believing it are 2 very different things.

Very much agree. And tho' I'm not a believer, I suspect Jesus would also agree - if there is any truth to Biblical stories, then this good man would have favoured people doing good kind work, before people getting down on their knees to worship him.
