A pretty good summary of why I'm no longer Catholic

I was raised Catholic. I spent 12 years of schooling in the Catholic system. It’s a wonder I haven’t guilted myself into jumping off a bridge yet– but somehow, I survived.

I found this video on Feast of Fools recently and just had to share it here. The subject is a bloke by the name of Pat Condell from London, England (hence the bloke comment), and he classifies himself as a comedian– but I think he’s much more than that. He’s witty, yes, but he is very well-spoken and he seems to have a good grasp of why Catholicism is the farce it truly is. And why the church should not only be feared, but avoided at all costs.

Rick lives in Chicago with his two furry children, Pippin and Screech, and enjoys photography, music, cooking and men... not necessarily in that order.
