Some days, I wish I were able to be as religious as I was before college.
However, as I am beginning to adapt and adjust to my environment with more ease, it has become apparent to me how unfitting a devout Catholic lifestyle would be for my life right now.
It's laughable to justify not practicing a religion because it's inconvenient, but it's the God's honest truth.
Maybe this yearning to be pious is not from a passion for spirituality, but more from a longing to feel deeply connected to a being that's existence can't even be proved; its existence is only felt.
I don't feel that existence.
I don't feel looked out for and I sure as hell don't think that a good person who believes in a different faith will suffer and burn in eternal flame.
I don't agree with most of the teachings and practices of the Catholic church.
It was founded with blood money.
To this day, the church is ruled over by a PERSON that is seen as almost divine- a PERSON that is supposedly the closest human to God himself.
Why is this person so much better than the rest of us?
Aren't we all supposed to feel close to God?
And isn't viewing a human as divine AGAINST the religion?
