This page is designed to giving a brief accounting of my beliefs in the hope that it will clarify things for someone and perhaps help someone see some of the things I believe. In terms of preaching, I don't believe it is right to pass moral judgement on someone except in certain cases. These cases are more restrictive than the typical religious view that since you did one thing that is slightly different from me, you are going to hell.

Sally: Forgive me Father for I have sinnen, I used a condom with my husband instead of contributing to the overpopulation of the world.

Father Smith: God forgives your sins.

People keep asking me what world I live in. I live in my world, where kindness is the default behavior, where trust and curtesy is to be expected. Is this naive of me? Perhaps, but tell me, where would you rather live?
