I’m reblogging this again because I love the message behind it and I think it needs to be passed on.
My mother let us choose. My brother and I decided that religion just wasn’t for us. She reacted neutrally and we were not baptised, nor did we make our first holy communion.
My sister chose religion. She woke my mum up every Said “its time to go to church”. She was baptised at 8 years old when she was able to do it for herself, read the relevant parts herself, and knew the choices she was making rather than it being made for her. And she was so happy. Religion should be a choice, and one that you are fully consenting and happy to make.
She’s now 12 and she still has the cross that was a gift at her baptism above her bed, and still reads her little bible from time to time. She doesn’t attend church any more, because she doesn’t feel that church is necessary to have a god.
I am an atheist, as I have stated. But I’m here for her if she ever wants to talk to me about her religion and all things associated.
That is how religion should be. For everyone.
This is such a beautiful message.

azesdrftghjnkghjd no, you don’t understand, Kojirō is such a sweetie and Haruka is such a sweetie that they could trust each other about their Pokémon needing rest……………..
James is such a sweetheart it’s ridiculous.
James is the best pokémon trainer ever. He asks if his pokémon WANTS to join him.
I want the pokemon games to have a James option where you can decide to ask a pokemon if they want to join your party.. it should be an option you can only pick at the start and if they say no you let them go and leave them alone
