"When was writing ever your profession? It's never been anything but your religion. Never."
--J.D. Salinger (Seymour: An Introduction)

What's your religion?

Writing is definitely my religion. Add a cupcake communion and that's pretty much it!

I am super sacrilegious today.

Oh, and if anyone knows the significance of this post's title, you will forever be the love of my life.

Superalzy: A cupcake communion sounds like my kind of event!

This is going to sound like the corniest thing ever, but a few years ago I decided that love is my religion.

I grew up Catholic but toward the end of my high school career I started to doubt it. In college I completely fell out of it and have been "lost" from religion ever since. And for a while I sort of had a big crisis about why we're here and what the whole point is if I don't believe in Catholicism anymore. That was what I had based my whole life and expectations on before, you know? But when day while I was thinking the whole "what's the point" spiel it occurred to me that as long as I spend my life loving, and being loved, then I'll be satisfied with my life even if it my ride really is over when they stick me in the ground.

And my lack of religion has never bothered me since.

Such a great quote by the great J.D. Salinger. I deffently consider writing my religion, it helps me understand the world around me.

I love the answers so far!

Christian. *shrug* I grew up with it and for me it means doing your best to love others and treat them with respect. Although I can hold a grudge for freaking ever so I have to work on that still.

But writing is up there too. :)

I'm not religious. My parents are both different religions so they wanted to let me choose. I never did. We were never church goers anyway.
Maybe I'm ignorant, but a lot of what history has taught me about religion I don't like. So I stay out of it.
I do, however, believe that someone watches over us and keeps us safe. And for me, that's enough.

My real 'religion' is dance. <3 I was born to do it and it will always be my soul.
