Where I am at least "of three years" would rarely be interpretted as the physical age of a living entity. I can see how it is ambiguous though, and I know that you were making a joke :-p.
Yeah, I was just messing with you. Tongue

But I guess I was looking for sacraments/tradition-transcendence, etc etc etc...

but now these 8 issues have led me to deconvert...

1. anti-Glbtq/homophobia

2. anti birth-control, etc..

3. the whole concept of-the soul

4. Hell/eternal damnation

5. the crucifixtion

6. original sin/the fall-Adam and Eve.

7. the Trinity

8. God's plan/God's will vs. prayer

9. the sex abuse crisis/scandal

10. the history of the catholic church

and bonus-

11. the wealth of the catholic church.

so all of that piled up and then I woke up and came to the realization that I was-they are brainwashed!!!! And I realized that I had way too much cognative dissonance....

So it was like a shock to me. But it's about intergrity/honesty with myself and intimacy....

So what should I do now? I have a close friend who is my godmother-but she's really brainwashed.....

Liberal, baptized yet not practicing Catholic here just to say a drive by:

What brainwashing? Is it my Democrat Confirmed Catholic dad or my Democratic liberal political activist Confirmed Catholic mom who is about the kill his or her self with the papal issued cyanide tablets? Consider

It's the poison in the sacramental wine. Beware.
Go to communion, and slip the host in your pocket.
Don't eat it. Whatever ya do.
