I was born and raised a Catholic and go to a catholic school, but I disagree with many of the church's teaching. Especially when it comes to gay marriage, divorce, and things like that. My parents are divorced (most of the ppl I know have split up parents) and my stupid religion teacher was pushing anti-gay and anti-divorce teachings and I was about to slap her but also I hate confrontation. I went home and ranted to my best friend until I was in tears. Long story short, atheism has its appeals
Wait, no! Please don’t stop believing in something because of a religion teacher! I’m so sorry she made you feel this way. Yes, she is, in my opinion, wrong about talking about anti-gay and anti-divorce, but you should not take that to heart. There are many people in the atheist community that continue to bash and insult theists, which is wrong as well.
And I recall, if I’m not wrong, Pope Francis accepting gay people? Or am I just making that up? Nonetheless, there’s plenty of different opinions and teachings in each religion, and you should decide which ones you believe and which ones you don’t. Not many people agree with everything in their religion 100%. Please don’t let this woman discourage you from believing in God, make that choice yourself.
