Well, you haven't included me in this. I've been an atheist for almost 60 years and, upon falling in love with a practicing Catholic, have now associated her religious ways with a need for me to have a deeper love for her by feeling as she does regarding Catholic beliefs. I'm doing everything I can to will myself that way and it's working, sort of like a powerful form of hypnotically induced need that finds itself buttressed by a complete willingness to think only positive thoughts regarding the faith and practices. I'm studying the Cathachism, going to Mass and enjoying it with her, feeling a loss at not being able to accept Communion, and really, a LOT more.
I know that it doesn't make sense (the Resurrection, Transubstantiation) but don't care anymore and I'm willing to completely suspend my disbelief because the idea of submitting to it is, now (for me), an immersion experience in love. She is absolutely overjoyed and I've been totally honest with her, and despite all that, she feels that the Holy Spirit is guiding me through my love for her. Be it as it may, I'm totally enjoying the whole process and intend to go through RCIA to convert. In fact, the whole idea of being less critical in my thought process is part of the enjoyment I derive from this.
Where's THAT category!? :)
don't care anymore
Sounds like Category 2 to me...
Also, this discussion is 7 years old... it even pre-dates my arrival on TA... How on earth did you find it? And why did you comment on it?
Yea, went through the Cat 2 thingie's, and so the "don't care" missive. Still, it's major focus is odd enough to lie outside that range enough to form it's own place.
One of the aspects of searching for a phrase is that, often, the search may ignore the age of the comments, etc. Commenting, though, often brings an old subject back into a new listing and restart further comments. Hey, what's time anyway? :)
I commented because I didn't see my category and thought it may add a different spin on what was already here.
