Thats exactly why christianity and catholicism are separate things. I know a lot of catholics that are biding to the rules of the institution, and then a lot of people that dont call themselves catholics, but are more christian then most that go to church on every sunday. Its all the matter of personal choice i guess. Id rather stay out of house blessing list, then out of faith i carry in me (with all the doubts and questioning).

Its a nice thought but I don't think it will end the confusion. People have tried to preach such things before, the problem is getting everyone to take to the idea. Plus, if one tried to enforce the concept on to everyone else, then that person would fall into the same category as religious nuts. And as for the youth not knowing about, I will agree there are more "bad" people in this world than "good", but I myself have either influenced or been influenced by the people I keep around me. And we each have set our own morals that we follow, passing it on to some of the younger generation. None of us are religious types, because in all honesty I don't like to use religion as a base for moral ground because of the fact that there are too many ways to interpret any religious writings.

I know, its just what most people do. And it annoys me becaus, to me atleast, it seems like they act nice because they either fear judgemnt of some "God" or seek reward for their acts.

Well, i can understand how growing up in certain religion, even if u grew out of it, it still stays in your ways more or less, like anything else u learned from ur elders.

I mean no offense by this post, but I think for some people it isn't growing up in a faith; it's a matter of hiding behind one.

Now that I agree with 100% Brielle. And worst part is, it isn't the only thing people hide behind.

Nina, you are right on that. I mean, whether we admit or not, what we grew up around does affect us as the years go on. Whether we grow away from it or not, it still holdssome affect on your current life. What I just mean is, well, let me put it this way. I'd rather have the world in utter chaoswith people showing their true colors, than everyone acting nice simply because they fear a "God" or seek some sort of reward. I know its corny and stupid for it to matter, but to me it does matter not just what a person does, but why they do what they do.

@AWBrielle: people will chose anything they feel comfortable with (more or less) to hide. Same like victims of abductions hide behind the simpathy for the one that abducted them i guess. Hide ur true face and it wont get hurt. Some will hide behind religion, some behind military serve, some behind inventing some fantasy creatures that are grose to "regular" people, some behind getting hurt or hurting someone else... this world is seriously fd, no one can deny that. And to survive in it, people adapt in many different ways, depending on their character/culture/religion. Being true these days is a very rare thing.....

You stole my hiding place.

Naw, all jokes aside - that's quite true. Hiding doesn't help anyone, though - that's something people need to realize.

True, in the end it doesnt, but hiding was one of the ways for cave men to survive, so i guess its an automatic response.

 :laugh: lol then in other words the majority of the youth wouldn't be considered catholic.. willingly  :roll:

True, butin that same way, the people around ustoday are also not "willing Catholics" so to speak. They grew up around it too. I think the only ones that could be considered "willing Catholics" would be those that started the religion.

Oh, u should live where i live. Its all about being a good catholic, in fact it goes so deep, that u arent a proper citizen if u arent one urself. So, on one side, theres a bunch of good, law biding citizens that go to church every sunday, and on the other hand, we have government, media, culture and education leaders that secretly  wear their capes every saturday and bow to Baphomet. Talk about contradictions huh?

Oh, I could not survive in a place like that. Especially if its expected of everyone to act that way.
