  •  The one time I went back ... (2+ / 0-)

    Grew up Catholic ... then left as soon as my parents let me (we always had to go as a family).

    Went back for one mass 3 years ago (my parent's 50th) and was struck by how cultish it all seemed. I really felt that everyone there was acting as if they were brainwashed. Pretty scary, and sad, actually.

    It is tougher when you can't rely on a phantom being, but ultimately you have a lot more freedom, and it is kind of rewarding to make your own decisions/mistakes and know that you are ultimately the one responsible.
