6. On edit: I wonder if certain people avoid bathing for that reason.

I've been corrected on the myth. But one must 'touch oneself' when one bathes, just a little bit anyway...

12. You'd be surprised at the restrictions modern fundies put on themselves

They don't shun bathing, but some of them do have time limits and some even wear underwear in the shower.

14. Every sperm is sacred...

Just think of all the galactic civilizations that could've been populated by all the sperm I wasted since the age of 13 or so. But then again, it's the aliens' fault for not coming to harvest and make use of it, so they are the ones going to hell... Yeah, that's the ticket!

Then again, the church freaks who put that sign up can go straight to hell...

And if it is photoshop, c'mon.. if you're gonna photoshop a church sign, sure you can do better...

15. Where is this?

I would like to know.

My great grandfather was a graduate of Sacred Heart College as were many other members of my family that happened to have been Catholic.

16. It may be photoshopped but I was raised in the catholic church and was

taught that unconfessed (and thus, unrepentant) masturbation was a ticket to hell (or at least purgatory with the hope that your progeny, friends, and relatives could pray your way into heaven).

Does the church still advance the notion of purgatory? I am pretty sure they got rid of limbo which pisses me off. I spent a lot of time in my youth worrying about those unbaptised babies just floating around... just floating around.... just floating around... for eternity. I hope the pope decreed them to heaven and not hell. I was so happy, at age 6, the nuns taught us how to give an emergency baptism with our spit so that if we ever came across a dying infant we could perform the rite and save them from limbo... and, while a child, so so so disappointed that I never got to use it.

17. Does the church still advance the notion of purgatory?

No they do not any longer thank god for that.

I was raised Catholic but fortunately my mother didn't force us into confirmation. She left it up to us to decide whether or not we wanted to commit ourselves to this religion. None of us cared to go for it all of the way and none of us are "practicing Catholics" so to speak although I have a lot of interest in the religion and find the lives of the saints to be quite intriguing, esp. the ones like St Columcille (aka St. Columba). He was more or less a pagan saint and had a most interesting life.

As for the rest of it, the only thing I once really liked about it was the incense and the Latin, two things that you never experience at a Mass anymore, not that I frequent them.

We have a small Catholic Church where I live and they got rid of a priest that had been here for years, "retired" him so to speak. I heard many stories as to the whys but I still don't know the reality of any of it. He was a good man and a helpful man that was of great assistance when my mother and father passed away. However, he wasn't really into it you could tell. He had his problems with it, I knew that not that I blamed him one bit.

18. Yeah. I liked the incense and Latin, too. Church is better when it smells nice and you

don't understand what is being said. I so loved the response chant part of the ceremony. I am so bummed about purgatory... I hope all those "sinning" relatives' souls that I prayed so fervently for made it up to heaven.

My mother was a devout catholic and my dad was an atheist - go figure. I went to catholic school and thus to mass for 6 mornings a week for 6 years. My little town of 2000 was near entirely catholic, so much so that the catholic school population was near 3 times larger than the public school across the street. My young life was so imbued with religion that us kids even played confession and communion.

20. Mine was much different

I grew up with a bunch of "WASPS". There was one Catholic church and that was it and very few Catholic students in a public school.

I could not take that! Mass 6 mornings a week! ACK. You have my sympathy believe me.

The best things about the Church are gone IMO. They sing these crummy little songs now, something that was never done years ago. It has lost everything it ever had to offer is the way I see it, including that priest that I liked that helped me and my family greatly.

I went on Easter Sunday last year. I was shocked to see a man with his wife and little daughter in front of everyone. The father played a guitar, the mother the piano and the little girl sang along with them. She had on a raggedy old sweater with holes in it. My God I thought to myself. That was THE ONE DAY that you went to church in the finest newly bought clothes you had that you saved up money to buy all year; Easter Sunday! Now the children are poor and wearing rags here in America at the Catholic Church where I am.

Needless to say I have little to do with them.
