About joining other cultures

Some cultures, especially cultures associated with a faith tradition, welcome new members.

Others don’t.

When cultures welcome new members, you have to actually join the culture and be accepted as a member in order to be part of it. Identifying as part of it isn’t enough. Neither is having a really strong desire to be part of it, or feeling really strongly that you are destined to be part of it.

Your desire is not another group’s obligation.
