That's awesome that they were/are open-minded about the church.
I did have a lot of rough crap to deal with, but I think that it's still damaging to your thinking no matter how 'deep' you are into the religion. Priests are sneeky! Hehe.
Hey again, heathen.
Thanks for the comment. Every single time I hear someone's positive comments it fuels me to stay strong. It can be easy, at times, to conform just to get people to back off. Reading about all of these other people can really build up your strength to press on into logic.
Do you still attend church/mass/insert religious ceremony here?
Your "About Me" leads me to believe that your community can sometimes be forcing Mary down your throat.
