        I like this thread. I can't believe how many Catholics there are. Though I'm about to be the odd one out. I am NOT religious. I think I just have bad experiences. I was raised LDS (Mormon) till I was 19/20. Most of my friends still are Mormon and so are my parents. All of my 6 siblings though have gone away. Some are still semi-active.

        I just have some major conflicts with some of the belief system and the rules. I also don't agree with some of their practices. They push boys to go on missions at 19 and when they return they are practically forced to marry. I don't agree with marriage that young (though some exceptions ). It's almost breeding to me. The girls go to college for their "family degree". For real it's a degree called Family Marriage something. Anyways there's quite a few things I don't agree with but that one bugs me to no end.

        My DH is the same. He didn't grow up Mormon but was converted (by his ex) when he was 18?? maybe. He is now non-religious like me. We will not force our children to go to church. If they want to go (when they are old enough to understand) then they can. But I was forced to go to church. Just like other families my best friend once was beaten b/c she didn't want to go. Her dad tied her up and beat her. That is so off topic. But yeah no force on my kids. Anyways I guess b/c of those experiences I'm not even spiritual. I did dabble in Wicca after leaving but don't consider myself that either. I do find religious very interesting and LOVE watching documentaries on it. I loved the Da Vinci Code and love reading about the Catholic religion (my mom was born and raised Catholic). So I love hearing other views.

              Calia, you can only edit a post for about an hour after posting it. After that, only the mods can do it.

                  Ditto on paganism. Christianity has it's roots in paganism. Studying Constantine (badass power-tripping killer who made Christianity big business) completely challenged everything I was ever told to believe. I thought all these tenets came from some holy man who knew Jesus back in the day but nope, they came from a charismatic pagan who wasn't even Christian himself until on his death bed. They should have never taught me to read haha
