I was brought up Catholic - used to be an alter boy for years - went to church every Sunday until I was about 18 and decided it wasn't for me. I believe there was a guy called Jesus who had a certain outlook on life and had a few followers. Don't believe he changed water into wine (if he could, he'd have been a millionaire!) or any of that nonsense. The issue I have is the organisation which sprung up in his name. The catholic church is riddled with corruption and all the stories that are coming to light around the world of abuse is sickening - meanwhile, seemingly nothing is being done in Rome. The Murdochs are at the sharp end of the phone-tapping enquiry, why isn't the Pope being openly questioned on the church's stance? Anyway...the upshot of this, is that I want to officially 'resign' from the catholic faith, but it seems that there is nothing you can do, like a baptism reversal. Other than being excommunicated (which would be the church's action, not yours) the only way is to swap to another bloody religion. I have a plan. Seeing as the whole organised religion mullarky (IMO) is nothing but fiction (as someone on acorn said, based around a 'made up sky fairy') why not make up an official system of renouncing your faith? What do you reckon? £10 a pop and they get a certificate saying they no longer wish to be regarded as a catholic (or whatever) and from then on will not be affiliated with any organised religion (aka cult). Has this got legs? Anyone fancy a JV on this?
