Honestly. What is going on? Gender neutral God? Open Church immigration policy?
I’m not religious but I was raised Catholic. By Catholic I mean I completed my necessary Holy Sacraments in order to marry in a Catholic Church! I sat in a booth and confessed all my sins as the Father forgave me. I genuflected, ate “stale wheat thins” purchased at “The Dollar Tree Store” as they attempted to pass this off as the the body of Christ. I painfully watched the Priest throughout the years drink wine and never shared with his disciples.
Now the Catholic Church is a safe haven for illegal immigrants & transgenders? Nothing against a person who may be confused in their own body. I support all. Nothing wrong with that. I always thought the Church frowned upon these lifestyles? Maybe that was a typo in the Holy book.
Why is the Church now breaking laws willing to house illegal immigrants?
Here’s my point. Rules within the Catholic Church seemed to be a bit more strict back in the day.
When my wife & I sat in front of our Priest during pre-cana 13 years ago, the Father made it very clear, we must pro-create in the name of Catholic Faith. “That is your sole purpose in life” he said. He informed us if these were not our intentions we should reconsider marriage. What if my wife couldn’t get pregnant Father? Who the hell are you to tell me what I have to do? You’ve never been laid in your entire life and now I’m taking sexual advice from you like you’re Dr Phil on three hits of Viagra. Go perform an exorcism & eat that stale cardboard wafer from Pathmark! Get lost.
I respect the church but he was way out of line.
Then he proceeded to tell us the organ player fee would be $600 cash. Who the fuck am I hiring, Billy Joel? Additional Church band members were $150 per musician as if I’m retaining Richie Sambora & the Nelson Twins. A seven piece quartet was costing me $1500 to perform one song in Church as my wife walked & tripped down an aisle she would ultimately regret strolling down. This band was so off key. I was pissed. My wife wanted marriage. I wanted a fucking rock concert.
My point is this. Has the faith been lost? Has religion become a business?
Why is the Lords House now welcoming transgenders & illegal immigrants? Is business down? Again, I have nothing against people who are different. In my eyes let’s call it as we see it. You are gay. That is totally cool. Don’t tell me you are a woman in a mans body. No. You are a gay man or woman. That’s fine. No need for justification. Embrace it. Real simple. Penis = Man. Vagina = Woman. There is no argument there. There just isn’t. Unless you’re Bruce Jenner, you have nothing.
Getting back to our journey towards marriage, the priest threatened me like I was disrespecting God if I didn’t have children with my wife. I told the Father to watch his attitude & I immediately was set on fire by six alter boys. I was beat to a pulp with that wicker 1700 foot money collecting device that could accept money from China. What is that? As soon as you genuflect, say a Hail Mary & belt out two Our Fathers, these cloak like figures stick a basket in your face for cash. I’m piss poor and just want to be in the Lords hands and I got the Church Mafia shaking me down for money. Then I receive self addressed envelopes via mail stating I must give the 10% of my earnings to the church. Monthly. Haha. Listen up Padre. I can barely pay my bills and get by. That 10% goes towards beer, dinners & sex toys! Maybe next time you will share your wine with us!!!!😜 Just sayin.
Today the Church has 6500 Spanish individuals playing volleyball in the back of their facilities & alter boys who use to be girls.
Religion, unfortunately, is simply a guide to give us an understanding of why we are here. It’s not real. It’s designed to give us purpose in life. There’s 1000’s of religions. Which one is correct?
Believing in something is the rational way to understand why we are here.
“Religion” is that “understanding”.
