Is it right?
Milton and Mary were just finishing second lunch on mother's day when Joseph got home. Milton and Mary, twins, were eating at Milton's apartment. "Hey, how was church?" Milton asked Todd.
"Fine, pretty boring." was the reply. He said this as he was putting his shoes into the closet. He left his black coat on as he grabbed a bowl of cereal.
"I didn't know that you went to a church," Mary said as she ate the last piece of her toast. She had saved the best part of the toast for last and this one was a middle piece with a lot of cream cheese and raspberry jam.
Joseph looked at her as he started to inhale a large bowl of fruit flavored cereal. "I don't,"he said. He got a bit of milk and cereal on his face, so he then turned his eyes towards the bowl as he continued eating.
"Wait, then why did you go today," Mary said.
Joseph looked back up from his bowl of cereal. "My mom was an avid church member. I go for her." .
"Oh,"how sweet. Did your mom enjoy going to church with you today?"
"oh, no. she has been dead for a few years. I went today because it is mother's day." He finished the bowl of cereal and placed in the sink after leaning the bowl back so that he could drink all the milk leftover in the bowl.
"Sorry," Mary said, flustered. "I didn't know."
"No problem. I go to church four times a year for her. Christmas, Easter, and Mother's day, and the nearest sunday to her birthday. I feel like it is the best way for me to remember her by. "
"Oh, nice,"Mary said. That was really nice, and it probably meant a lot to his mom, if an afterlife was possible afterall.
"Is it though?" Milton asked. "I mean, it is not like her truly believes it. He kind of does it just for show. Kind of like the pharisees in the old book. Does it mean much?" Milton was a philosophy student, but that was rude. Mary gave him a somewhat playful hit on the shoulder.
"I am just saying. Anyway, any interesting talks today? Did the missionaries got you?"
"No, I did avoid them again. I sit in the back and leave once the closing prayer is over. We had a new pair today. The last ones must have been transfered. They are sisters now to."
"It is not apporpriate to think like that." Joseph replied.
"Yeah, go to horny jail." Mary said, giving him another hit on the back shoulder. They all started to clean up the kitchen. Joseph started working on the few dishes that were in the sink, while the others wiped things down and used the broom.
"One of them was hot, but I did not get a could look. I was serveral rows behind them and I left pretty quick."
"Still," Milton said, "is it right to go to a church, or faith, just because it was the one your parents went to when you do not believe?"
"That is a question on a lot of people's minds," Joseph said. "It is on my mind all the time."
