Hi, ^-^ first of all i would like to thank anyone who actually reads this ^-^ thank you again.
I am currently being raised in a pretty strict catholic family but the belifes of my family are very very far from what i belive in i dont hate people who belive in god and jesus, i just cant belive in it there to many gaps. Also i cant see my self beliveing in a religion that says that they are a religion of peace when historicly they have spreed so much pain and death. So after around 4 years of strugling with my self i decided to turn away from the belif in god. Insted after investigating many different religions i saw that shinto was the best choice for me. Me and my friend Hiro (a exchange student from Japan and the one that helped me a lot in understanding this complex religion) took me to Japan with him for the summer after visiting the shrines and speaking with many different shinto followers including one shinto priest my mind was made up ^-^
But of course i still recpect and appreciate the views others ^-^
