Amy: I had a full moon ceremony Sunday night!
Katie: You did?!
Amy: Yeah. My friend upstairs do it all the time and I make fun of them, but was secretly jealous so I finally joined them.
Julia: What was it like?
Amy: It was fun! We wrote things on paper that we wanted to get rid of and then burned them while chanting. Actually, I made them chant because I thought it was what was supposed to happen. They don't usually do that. We chanted like Jambi from Pee-wee's Playhouse.

Amy: Me too!
Julia: I left the church at 12 because of a) misogyny and b) I didn't like anyone trying to tell me that because I was a girl I could never aspire to truly speak to God on my own behalf, and would always need a male priest to do that for me. Highly offensive.
Amy: I was curious because we talked about that last night. One of them joked about making the sign of the cross and I told her you can't combine Catholicism with witchcraft.
Julia: 'Course you can. It's ironic. Ironic religion is the best kind.
Katie: How do you guys identify now? Agnostics?
Julia: No, not agnostic. I've had a strong innate belief in god since I was
