My mom sent me to Baptist Sunday school. I would always sit through the lesson thinking how ridiculous it was . Then I went to Catholic boarding school my last two years of high school. At least this was more jolly, with lots of pretty windows and pleasant singing in Latin. However, I spent most of the time daydreaming or watching prismatic "donuts" floating in the air. I just never could find anything that made sense. I passed catechism class with flying colors, but didn't believe a word of it. Had to convert to Catholicism to marry my husband (big mistake all around). After the divorce, I went into a church once and tried to find a god but there wasn't one there. I thought it was very comforting for the folks who believed, but I just could not believe. The whole idea was so inane to me. About 40 years later I had been unemployed for some time, had no money to pay my rent, etc. I called social services and they said to try churches in the area. I went to several of them, but they said they didn't have the funds. I called one that was a bit further out (gas money concerns). The pastor said to come on Sunday at 9 a.m. and he would see what he could do. I got there on Sunday at 8:45 and told the pastor I was the one who needed help with rent. He said to have a seat in the congregation room (or whatever he called it) and he would see me after the service. The freaking service was 2 hours long and such a big load of malarkey it made my stomach turn. Finally, after the service and his shaking hands with every single person, I asked if he could see me. He said, "We only help those who are members of our church." What an asshole!

I was in an accident and later, on the spot had to join a church because I was accepting their help.

I tried to work with it but then I became a point of Gossip for the 'elders'


My sister was wooed by a minister in our area and was confirmed at some point. She was a good student and was active in all the right areas to get ahead (keep reading) . I knew she didn't believe in a damn thing except herself and how to get ahead. (or as the local minister prolly hoped, give head).Our family never went to church.Now she is married to a ministers son and he is a fundamentalist Calvinite. It is ironic on a cosmic scale to see her now taking adderal and prozacs because her husband is a fundamentalist lawyer with a super high IQ and an ego the size of the earth itself.A tad bigger than hers but bigger nonetheless.

She is his now and he has removed her to the other side of the country and they contribute their opinion on how we should live whenever they visit. She talks the talk but I'm her little brother, I know my sister is like a biker chick when it comes to shit disturbing. 

It's the idea that her husband actually thinks he has already been chosen by God to go to heaven, over other people, that takes the cake. They are afflicted with condescension. that permeates the atmosphere when they talk to you.

think of Diane and Fraser on the show Cheers.

A side note: they had a child who was born with his toes fused together andhad to have them separated. They named him Calvin. I call him Cloven.
