Good Catholic
So I'm out running this morning and I'm almost home. I'm running in front of the church on the block next to my neighborhood and about to cross the church parking lot entrance when I hear a car slowing down next to me. Realizing that it's probably about to turn into the parking lot, I look to make sure that it's going to give me the right of way like the law says it's supposed to. But the car cuts right in front of me and I have to stop running to let it go by. I look into the window to see who this "good Catholic" is that thinks parking in a hurry is more important than my safety and the law. I see the person is all dressed in black with a little white square on the front of the collar. Yup, it was a priest! Asshole. Dodgy

I am not accountable to any God. I am accountable to myself - and not because I think I am God as some theists would try to assert - but because, no matter what actions I take, thoughts I think, or words I utter, I have to be able to live with myself.

There's a difference between being a good catholic and a good person.

Atheism is the only way to truly be free from sin.

Ha! So true. Smile

I hope you flipped him off and said "Thanks, asshole!".

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

His windows were up so he wouldn't have heard me. I did think about flipping him off, but decided it wasn't really like me to do that. I figured he probably looked in his rear-view mirror (because he had to know he cut me off) so I stopped in the middle of the entrance and stared in his direction for about 20 seconds with a scowl on my face to make sure he saw it if he was looking.

I'm sure he would have stopped for you if you had been much younger.

No kidding. The millionaire deacon at the church I attended just used the hobby lobby ruling to no longer provide contraceptives for his employees. What a jerk.

Impulse is too old. Once the short curlies are in, it loses its charm for them. Smile
