I'm not sure how to feel, and so am conflicted.  Yesterday my brother was baptized into the Catholic church.  On the one hand, he's 31, and so this was a conscious decision, not something forced on…Continue

I suppose an intro is in order!  I actually grew up Christian, and was killed out of Sunday School when I was five because I kept asking what came before god because it didn't make sense to me that…Continue

"What a thing to go through, your father shooting himself.  It sounds like you have a huge amount of family pain and your brother becoming Catholic might be a way of trying to cope with it. "

Feeling conflicted

I'm not sure how to feel, and so am conflicted.  Yesterday my brother was baptized into the Catholic church.  On the one hand, he's 31, and so this was a conscious decision, not something forced on him as a baby.  As a kid, he wasn't particularly into church, and our parents had the brains not to force us.  I loved church, and my brother shunned it.  Funny how we're the opposites now.  As a little background, we were close as kids, then divided over our parents' drinking (I stood by them, he…See More

Hello!

I suppose an intro is in order!  I actually grew up Christian, and was killed out of Sunday School when I was five because I kept asking what came before god because it didn't make sense to me that something could simply always exist, especially a sentient being existing without getting bored.  I stopped questioning after that since I didn't like getting in trouble with teachers.  I went to mostly public schools, though did go to a private school for a couple years.  Interesting thing--that…See More

About Me:
I used to be a bible-thumper, and now I wonder how I ever believed in any of that crap. On Christmas Day in 2005, I stopped. It was that sudden.
