“Have you given any more thought to joining Grams and me at the tent meeting this week? It’d mean so much to her.”
“ Ma, you know how I feel about revivals. All the threats of hellfire and damnation are just too much. It’s too confusing. Faith is very straightforward and simple.”
“That fancy, schmancy community college of yours is putting all sorts of heathen thoughts into your head.”
“I think I’m old enough to make my own decisions about my beliefs, and what’s best for me.”
“So, Miss Know-It-All what religion have you picked? Buddhism, Hinduism? What?”

Haha, great way for your character to handle that conversation.
isms and schisms and sects and sex . . . oops – sometimes faith is just that – faith. 🙂
great take on the prompt. Thanks for playing.
I like this piece a lot. Let’s hope perfectionism doesn’t become a major, organized religion, though. That could be very dangerous ;-). Great job with the prompt.
A great story.
Perfectionism – now that sounds like a religion worth following!
I love it!
