There's Catholicism and then everyone else that found Catholicism too hard. Like Martin.

I heard a nice quote:

In my religion I am both orthodox and un-orthodox. I am unorthodox in that I do not attend church. I am orthodox in the sense that the Church that I don't attend, is Roman Catholic.

I am Catholic, but really do not believe alot of what the Church would have us believe.

My mother was Catholic. My father was Protestant, Evangelic and Reformed, now United Church of Christ. I preferred my father's church to the eternal chagrin of my mother. I attended Catholic parochial school through 6th grade, then insisted on attending the public school. My mom was furious with me.

My sister is very Catholic. I just don't particularly care for the religion all that much. I guess I was turned off by the eternal passing the plate at my mom's church. I felt better listening to a good sermon at dad's church than listening to the Latin. (I know, I know, the masses aren't in Latin anymore---not for a long time)

Because of the tug of war, I guess I'm not particularly any religion.

Missouri Synod Lutheran, too...at least until about 54 years ago. Good church - yup, Catholic lite. But there just aren't any gods. Been an atheist since.

I assume by "Catholic" you mean roman - right? I'm catholic - but not Roman.

Dad was an ex-Catholic. I thought about following in his footsteps, but I believe in contraception.

I have catholic relatives, but my grandfather rejected that faith around the time the nuns in Austria tied his left hand behind his back so that he could learn to write with his right hand, as only Satan's children are lefties. One of my uncles converted when he got married, same with one of my cousins.

My mom was raised episcopalian, my dad was raised methodist. I was christened in a methodist church, but my parents joined a UCC church when we moved to Grand Rapids, which is what I grew up attending. My dad couldn't deal with the kneeling involved in the episcopalian church, and my mom didn't like the methodist church for some reason (probably not liberal enough for her). The UCC church in our neighborhood had Sunday School for the kids during the service for the adults, so my parents both agreed on that issue.
