you dont have to go to church every sunday to be a christian. many christians dont go to church at all. I only go on big holidays now but i still read my bible and i still plan on raising my child with christian beliefs. But it doesnt take a church or sanctuary to talk to god.

i don't believe it takes a church or sanctuary to talk to God either......BUT i do believe going to mass on Sundays and religious holidays is a big part of being a Catholic....at least for me.....to each his own though.

hey i'm not bashing anyone. If living and breathing religion is your thing then more power to you.

I personally don't think you need to go set foot in a specific building in order to do your thing. I get that you feel closer to God when inside a church and you get to hear your teachings from people who dedicate their whole lives to it. I mean I would go to a Temple and listen to a Monk teach. I'm not going to learn all I can without the help of others so it's kind of the same thing. But on the flip side I do most of my research in my own home. I don't have to go to a temple to meditate. I can do it wherever I please.

Which reminds me. I should be doing that more.

thats why you should never bring up politics or religion. everyone will have their own opinion.

Have you never heard the term North Eastern Catholics? They only go to church on Christmas and Easter?

And by "typical Catholic," i mean "full of shit."

And my father had the right idea. Don't get mad that my experience with the Catholic church isn't all unicorns and rainbows.

i was getting mad?

and now that you described what "typical Catholic" means to you then your orginal statement makes total sense to me now.

The correct answer: for reasons as personal as somebody's reasons for embracing Christ.

On a personal note, I really like a lot of Christians I've dealt with on a regular basis. Some of the most awesome people I've met (both in the vernacular and literal awe-inspiring senses) were Jesuits, who are just so awesome. I've quite literally seen a Jesuit respond to a random drunk kid going "man, fuck the Pope" with a few seconds of quiet reflection, and then going "well, you might have a point, but consider it this way..." and then making a lucid argument about the nature of the church itself. Jesuits: the Catholic Jedi.

I might consider converting if they had lightsabers.
