ISOBEL

Could somebody please explain to me why religion is so embarrassing? I mean, after a certain age, as soon as you're considered old enough to be able to make your own decisions, when you're no longer supposed to allow your mother to hug you in front of witnesses unless it's under protest, suddenly, if you still go to church, willingly, if you still believe in any type of God, any kind of tradition, you must be simple-minded. You're obviously not using your whole brain, you're not skeptical or questioning enough to be considered an adult, or at least not an interesting one. When did I suddenly become everyone's intolerant, humorless, half-witted Sunday School teacher? I didn't sign up for that.
