"Well, I used to be a Roman Catholic until I read the Bible, and this was probably the conversion question for me back when I tried so desperately to prove religions superiority, and failed. You see, I decided that people who say they believe in an…"

I grew up in the Roman Catholic faith. My mother was Catholic and she demanded I be brought up Catholic as well (ok, she didn't demand, but I had no say in the matter). I had a different POV on Catholicism then most of my classmates, for while my mother was Catholic, my father was Protestant (Trinity United, or something like that). I never questioned my dad's faith, b/c I thought everyone had a protestant dad. My entire family only attends his church services for Christmas Eve mass. I knew it as the mass w/o communion and holding candles while humming Silent Night. I remember always being excited to attend my father's services b/c they were a lot more "fun" then my mom's. As I grew older, I realized that my family was odd compared to my class'. Almost everyone else's parents were both Catholic. This confused me, so I decided to actually learn about the differences between the two (Christianity and Protestantism). And thus, my blanket of faith began to unravel. From that point on, Istarted to question my faith more and more, especially since the Catholics say it will strengthen your faith. I must've been doing it wrong, because by my Freshman year in high-school, I was a full fledged Atheist. And the rest is history.
