I remember as a little girl going to church and praying so hard for help for my mother.  It never came.  Only more suppression and "sinner bullshit". Then as an adult when I tried to tell church members that my husband was emotionally and physically abusive, I was told to "Turn the other cheek"! 

Once in high school, I was put in front of the entire congregation trying to cleanse me of my sins, because I was a cheerleader.  I ran out of the church.  What about being punished as a female because of menstruation?  

I do not believe in winged beings and old white men with long beards and wearing linen sitting "up there" over seeing all of this.  Religion has many cult like components to it, just like politics.  Both have become pervasive powers that dominate every culture world wide. 

I believe that churchs can more productive when they are inclusive and they take action when their male leaders molest, rape, and hurt women and children.  Catholic Church is just one of the publicized cases of abuse from clery.  Can you imagine?

Churchs should be in the business of empowering its members to accept, tolerate and be out in the streets on Sunday's and doing instead of preaching.  

God - if any energy at all exists like this - it is within you.  A living God.
