I want to believe in something.
I think I've talked about this before in this blog. And I do believe in some things. I believe in love, beauty, science...but I don't have that cushioning of religion. I'm not an atheist; if anything, I guess I'd qualify as an agnostic.
But wouldn't it be nice to believe in something?
However, then I look around. It's Sunday and the store is full of the post-church crowd. They're normal people, and some of them look happy. But they're people and the majority, they, for whatever reason, after a day of worship and hearing messages of love from their God, are pissed off or lazy or stupid and are taking it out on us.
Little things: not cleaning up when their kids make a mess, being rude about bags at the register, making a stink when a product is in stock. I believe in politeness.
So I wait to believe. What should I believe in, if I can't believe that people who are told some deity loves them can pass that love on to others?
