Protestant church, nor by any church that I know of...Each of those
churches accuse the other of unbelief; and for my own part, I
disbelieve them all."

When God talks to you, some call it psychosis.
It is not always a good idea to follow the voices in your head.
The problem with religions (or politics) which have all the answers
is that they do not allow any questions.

Poetry Contributed by David from Michigan, USA
Not from preachers, epiphanies,
nor angels that rejoice,
but through my fellow Brights, (or humanists, UU, or other freethinkers)
you shall hear my voice.
As we reach for the stars,
and strive for an ideal,
to the conscience of humanity,
we make our appeal.
Full of promise and compassion,
not division and hate,
we're grounded in reality,
not apocalyptic fate.
For truth is not delusion,
but rather cold hard fact,
it stands without apology,
embellishment or tact.
Though sometimes catastrophic,
for the results that it brings,
only nature can be perfect,
for it's the measure of all things.

analogy of every realm of human life and thought, religion not least of all.
