Hello :) I’m a Roman Catholic by name, but I’ve been in a Methodist school for 8 years. It’s hard for me to adjust because I have to admit, people from my Methodist school were less violent and less selfish. I felt like I had a second family. When I started going to my Catholic school, I felt alone and devastated with what I saw. I saw a lot of things (violent and foul). I kind of understand why people (even the Catholic friends I have) hate being Catholic / hate Catholics. Some of them are just so…(majority actually…) I don’t even know.
I respect every religion, too though. :) I just understand better now. I have friends who are ‘catholics’ but they call themselves ‘agnostics’ and ‘atheists’. I just wanted to understand better and now that I’ve witnessed, I myself know more now.
I am a Catholic, but sometimes I don’t like the ‘Catholics’ around me because they’re hypocrites (though not all are mean). I know we all are. It’s just that it’s more of how you experience different religions. I’ve lived two religions, and surrounded by people from other religions. Sometimes you just can’t help but compare and think ‘Oh, maybe that’s why…’
Thank you! :)
