Religion. Now a Days it's a Touchy Subject

Religion. Now a days it's touchy subject. More so than it ever was. What is Religion? The legal term for Religion is The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution provides that "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof." Other definitions of Religion include: A strong belief in a supernatural power or powers that control human destiny. An institution to express belief in a divine power. A belief concerning the supernatural, sacred, or divine, and the practices and institutions associated with such belief. The sum total of answers given to explain humankind’s relationship with the universe. There are others too but it would probably take all night to find them. What Religion means to me is a seperation of Society. I grew up in a Catholic school and was Baptized a Catholic in the first grade. My family is mostly made up of Methodist and Baptist. I went to Catholic school in my community because the public schools weren't so great. My family wanted someting better for me. I attended this school for 8 years. St. Joan of Arc was it's name located in Camden, New Jersey. Since then the school has closed but the Church still stands there and hardly anyone attends anymore. Our Parish was singled out on the 80's for the Priest doing awful things to the children. I was very shocked when I learned this. By this time I was in High School. Now all the time thats all you hear about what Priests in other Parishes are doing to children. So of course those Priests soured me on the Catholic Religion. In my days of attending the Church our Priests had spent more time screaming at us. For what was being done wrong in the community. Telling us what we should and shouldn't do and who what and where we shouldn't be involve with. Wasn't teaching the Gospel anymore. It became to personal to go anymore. So of course I didn't go to Church anymore not to long after I started High School. Just didn't enjoy it anymore. Then the horrible news came what those Priests that I grew up with was doing to our friends siblings. So what happend to me was I just took no Religion at all. I read into Wicca and what that was all about and I really kind of liked what I found. It is so misunderstod. Witchcraft and magic and potons and brews? Not at all of what anyone thinks. Then in 1994 I met a man who was Jewish. He was adopted in 1971 when he was only 2 days old. Taken very good care of by a really nice family that loved him and cared for him like their real son. He was taught the Jewish Religion and learned Hebrew and even had a Barmitzva. So when we got real serious his family asked me if I would convert. Since I didn't matter much to me what Religion I was anyway I said I would really be happy too. The Old Testament of the Bible interested me more with the exception of The Book of Revelations. So I did convert and got my Certificate and we were married at the Campground that I grew up at. It is such a beautiful place and was the perfect place where all Religions could meet and celebrate our day of joining. We were married by a Rabbi who was really funny and took into account all the Religions attending our Wedding. Now is finally the day where we were to have our children. Of course they would be raised Jewish and instead of being Baptized they had a Briss. That is a baby naming ceremony welcoming baby to the Jewish community. By tradition you choose a name from a family member who has passed. It's really big honor to the family in which you chose the name from. Now we found a few problems with my children growing up and telling others they are Jewish. People not allowing their children to play with them. I think it is just not right to be judge for your Religion. First I would even say that these children really have no clue what Relgion means or they would not treat anyone that way. It's their parents or other family members that teach them how to grow up and treat people with other Religions that way. I should just tell my children not to associate with a Catholic because of my past experience with that and everything you see about that on TV. But I am not that kind of Parent and just don't judge anyone for their Religion or anything else for that matter. If you believe in Jesus or you don't, to all the Religions, don't you know Jesus was Jewish. We have even had to move and just not tell people what Religion we are. It really is a sad sad world. Does it really matter what Religion you are. One day we will all just be in the ground and then it don't matter who you are because we will all be in the same place and time. I am not even talking about God. Just Religion. God is another subject entirely. One day I may write my views on that. But today I will just stick to Religion. One day while in a group discussion the subject was brought up about when this seperation of people will stop. I had an answer in which I believe is coming true. It amazed the many people in that room. My Uncle who has done a lot of prophesizing and so far many of the things have been right. When we told him one day my son still did not speak he said thats ok Dawn, he will be with the others who will grow up and rid the world of smut. I got chills when he said this and had to really think about what he was saying. My son has Autism. He is 11 and to this day still can't talk. When he was 2 he was diagnosed. The numbers back then of a child being diagnosed with Autism in the United States was 1 in 150. That was in 2002. Now in 2012 the numbers have been recently updated to 1 in 98. The TV commercials on Autism that had just been recently released have the numbers at 1 in 110. Those numbers have changed yet again to 1 in 98. They just haven't caught up yet. Autism is rising every year and soon there will be a generation of Autism. Autistic children don't care who you are, what you're wearing,what you like on TV or what your favorite cartoon is. They don't judge or tease and really have no idea what it means. It looks to me like my Uncle could be right and a New World Revolution is about to be started. I am proud to have a son who will be part of it. And for your viewing pleasure Our Wedding http://youtu.be/MgijJnCW9Do http://youtu.be/oKQZ-cHO3bU
