I might have been 13 when I saw the ruse of everyone sacrificing until it hurt except the preacher.

Stopped going as soon as I was old enough to not be forced.
if i recall, the church was demanding that we gace (i think) 1/3 of our weekly pay for the collection plate..

i seem to VIVIDLY recall my late dad saying, "those bastards get what I CAN AFFORD to give them, not a penny more"

so when i would go to church by myself, he'd give me a quarter in the collection envelope to hand them ONE TIME, god, those bastards passed that collection plate something like 4 times during a ceremony.....

but i only had that one envelope..

in later years, mom and dad tried to get me into a catholic school.....

priest downright told my folks, (paraphrasing it here....)

"well, i can see that you did not put enough money into the collection plates...."

dad, mom stormed out, nearly pulling my arm out of it's socket....

screw'em......i can honestly say, the catholic religion is among the BIGGEST bunch of hypocrites on the face of this earth....

If you don't even know what parts of your religion are from the Bible and what was totally made up by some church leaders somewhere along the way, maybe it's time to ask yourself if it's a religion or a cult you belong to.
it's been like what, nearly 7 decades since i been in any church or read any bible, or other religious books?

i know some were stories of course. but that's all i can recall right now.

dad and i would sit way in the back of the church, and the PA system never really worked all that well, so i cannot recall much of what the priests were saying or griping about.

all i can admit to, is that it has been "nearly" 7 decades since i been to any church or temple (half Jewish/half catholic)...and then of course, at what age, did i (or my folks) stop going to church or saying that i had to go..???

was i 1 year old, 5 years old, 15 years old...????

at what age did my parents try to get me into catholic school...??

kindergarten..???.....2nd grade.....???.........5th grade..????

at what age would i have been allowed to walk by myself to the church, 5 blocks away..???

5 years old...?? 8 years old...????


one can be OLD and not show it, like Mic Jagger who looks like he's a 1,000 years old, or Keith Richards, who is actually dead and decaying.....

i have been told (and my new passport pic shows it)........i don't look "that old"..........
