I went to church when I was younger (Episcopal) and though the friends I found in youth group saved my life at a time when I was most vulnerable, I never really believed. So much of what I heard was contradictory, hypocritical, and jarred with what I feel in my innermost heart is good and right. The people at my church were outward very nice people, but there was a much more insidious intolerance behind their nice middle-class smiles, and when our pastor left and we got an interim pastorette who was virulent homophobic, I knew it was my time to leave. I've never looked back.

There's more truth and beauty in the universe than the overly simplistic, narrow, dogmatic crap that religion often provides. I still consider myself a practicing Zen Buddhist (learned basic zazen when I took karate and never stopped doing it) if I absolutely had to put down a religious/spiritual preference, but I don't actively practice anything anymore. Don't really see the reason to.
