The Roman Catholic Church  
Why do I have such a big problem with the Roman Catholic Church?

I was asked to pledge myself as a full adult member at the age of eleven.
That's the worst kind of indoctrination I have ever been the victim of.

Scientology may prey on the foolish and insecure, but Catholicism preys on children.

You asked a question AND answered it in the one post!

Well, it's a journal, so I was kind of talking to myself.

Man, you do that ONLINE as well as in real life?

If you logged on to icq you could talk to me!

How about some gritty details? Did you pledge yourself, are you still bound by that pledge, are you tormented by recurring dreams of purgatory or of eternal furniture waxing?

Hmm... I did make some promises, although, seeing as legally an eleven year old can't enter into a contract, I don't still feel bound by that.

I have seriously considered writing to the Pope to request an official ex-communication, but I think I'll wait until the current one dies, so that my letter might be read by a Pontiff that has at least a few of his marbles.
