19 years of being a good catholic, but in the last couple of years I started to see the hypocrisy. I saw how politics and religion seem to go hand in hand. I also found myself questioning what I was being taught more and more.
So, no more church for me. I fell I don't need someone else telling me how to be a good person, I can screw that up just fine on my own.
I am married to a woman who is a recognized minister of her faith. I think that is good enough for the whole family. (oh, and she does not push what she believes on others, at least not our friends and those we know as a couple)
So, in a nutshell, why I don't go to church. Hypocrisy, Politics and the realization that I do not need it to be happy in life.
