I've thought about converting back to Christianity just for the purpose of being accepted again. Like it or not, there is a bbenefit to religion. It helps people assemble and thrive as a cohesive unit and support system. It sucks being on the outside and being ostracized. I think becoming atheist was the worst thing that ever happened to me. I wish I could go back and not have the awakening I had that made me change my mind.
You can't crawl back into your mother's womb ... you can't un-see things once seen. Society is fine, except for the people. I wouldn't describe my experience of Christian congregations as accepting ... just fellow Stepford wives. At least in Buddhism, you can cut your own path. Everyone here is non-conformist and usually anti-social ... so you are talking to the wrong people if you want acceptance. I get plenty of socialization thru work, I don't need a congregation for that. But I am recently back in synagogue ... but not because of the friendship ... it is more of a codependence thing, like a lot of families.
I have to keep my personal opinions mostly secret from the congregation, though being theist anyway, that doesn't amount to much. The Holy Spirit was working hard last Friday night, I spontaneously agreed with a point the rabbi was making, from my own experience ... there is a confusing mixture of metaphysical beliefs between people that interferes with understanding each other, just like here. The understanding of time in Biblical Hebrew is completely different than in English for instance.
