I am now a pick and choose Catholic. That is I pick out basically what I thing God is telling me to believe in and not using the rest. One example in the past was Birth Control, also Holy Days of Obligation which are days we are supposed to go to Church (Mass). I don't go to those as they came from the early times when the Church just wanted to collect more mooney from the poor. The way to do that was to quilt trip them into going to Mass and then telling the people of The Church's Needs! (Like food and shelter aren't needed for poor peasant farmers in Middle ages!) The Church has always had plenty of money. It is the Father, Son and Holy Spirit I try to follow. The Father being G-d, Son-Jesus, Yshua? Yeshua, Jahovah and Holy Spirit--usually represented by a white dove or a rush of wind or tongue of fire in the Book of Acts in the Christian Bible. I have been some other faiths also, however and I once seriously considered converting to Judiam. My purpose here is to learn NOT to offend. Thank you.
