Gods Don't Want That

Aztec human sacrifice, from Codex Mendoza, 16t...Image via WikipediaLast night we were watching Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (of the movies in the trilogy, it's by far the darkest and most violent- I hope I didn't warp the girls for life).  During the scene where the priest is sacrificing an innocent victim, Kayla looked at me and said "Gods don't want that."  Out of the mouths of babes.

Just yesterday I posted an article here about all the unlearning so many of us have to do as adults due to the religious baggage we carry around. I was so proud to hear Kayla at 10 with her simple understanding of what it has taken me years to unlearn.
