Last night I received an email from someone inquiring about my interest in participating in her blog that discusses religion. My instinct was not to – I’m quite happy with my religion and the meaning it brings me, and have no desire to debate, convince or even be contrasted with others responding about their religions.
Since I try to respect those making requests of me, I make an effort to check out their position before responding in a knee jerk manner. When looking at the blog of the woman I received the request from, I found a list of upcoming topics and posters. I found it interesting and educational to note the wide variety of participants and their respective religions (I hadn’t heard of a womanist before).
Here’s the listing of the religions represented: Muslim, Catholic, Objectivist, Agnostic, Womanist, Pagan, Jewish, Druid, Atheist, Christian, and scheduled (tentatively, I assume) for October there I was……………………….
I couldn’t help but wonder what led to that categorization.
