07:05 pm - yet another reason...
why I know the universe has a perverse sense of humor:

The people who introduced me to the musical Jesus Christ Superstar are behaviorally-confirmed atheists.

Who would that be, then?

You and Sharkins. Plus Ulysses is responsible for a number of the times I heard it as well.

I had been going to write "all the big fans I know are" but thought I remembered Angela as a devotee as well, so I had to back off.

I really enjoy a lot about religion, I just have a complete lack of faith in a sentient uber-being. The closest thing to my belief in a higher power is Horton Hears A Who. It may be out there, but it certainly doesn't care that we are here.

Unlike some people my religious upbringing is something I remember fondly. It was a special time with me and my dad, and sometimes his folks. We got to wear pretty clothes, and sing songs, and our church was this very quaint little mission from very early in the 20th century. It sat fewer than 100 people. Everybody knew me and was happy to see me and nice. We got to eat little wafers and hear stories and say "Peace be with you" to complete strangers and shake their hands. We also had a priest for most of it who was relatively young and very entertaining and nice. Sure there was the occcassional lecture on how just thinking about sinning was the same as sinning, but we just weren't serious enough Catholics in my family to much care. If my grandparents were there we went out to lunch, which was something my family pretty much never did. I don't remember a time when all six of us went to a restaurant when it wasn't someone's birthday. So church was pretty fun, except the getting up early part. Also it was completely voluntary, as my mother wasn't Catholic my parents left our religous orientation up to us.
