So.... A funny thing happened to me when I was 9 years old
I was excommunicated from the church.... Yes, you heard that right. At 9 years old lol.


This means I don't have to think about religion ya? I mean even if there's a heaven I was already given the boot! MWAHAHHAHAHHAHA A LICENCE TO LIVE HOWEVER I WANT MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

True story, it makes me laugh to this day.

Oh.... the crime? My parents took me once to a church of a different denomination....

RE: So.... A funny thing happened to me when I was 9 years old
Oh... to clarify....

Um.... There's a lot of very good reasons I prolly SHOULD have been kicked out of the church at 9 (or earlier).... but that's the one that did it....

Funny, I once brought a fairly pornographic (Gory voilence, sex scenes, lots of Fuck words) movie to youth group when the youth pastor asked me to bring in some anime to show everyone.... I'm amazed I got kicked out for the post above and not this one... lol

I don't think anything good could come out of that thread title.

lol indeed....

I wonder how many people you've met that have been excommunicated though.... At least it's kinda funny and unique eh?

I can say you are first that I know of.

> You're fortunate. If you were a Catholic, you couldn't get excommunicated even if you sent the Church a written, notarized request in which you stated that God does not exist and the Catholic Church is most politically and morally corrupt organization on the planet.

> I recently received my De-baptism certificate from American Atheists. Thumbsup

My father got, not excommunicated, exactly, but defrocked, when my mother left him. At that point he'd been a full-time missionary for a decade. I can't say I'm surprised by JesseB's experience, but I'm appalled by it. What a sad and stupid thing to do to a kid.

People at our church just stopped speaking to us kids. It was socially awful, but at least it wasn't aimed straight at our souls.

Hehe, well I like to tell people I'm a soulless bastard.

OH this one time in Texas this woman said "What kinda Christian are ya?" and I said "I'm a humanist." She started laughing, clearly she didn't believe me lol.

Did not even know defrocked was a word.
