Hi catholics ! First of all, I respect religious people, but I'm not one at all.
The thing is, my parents force me to go to the church every sunday ... even if they know I'm not a believer at all. I'm 17 and I'll actually be free when I'm 18 by still, it makes me sick, just out of principles ... you could believe you're living the inquisition. I don't dare to miss the office, I'm afraid they'll take my pocket money or something
But I really would like them to understand ... its like they're deaf. I hate them for that.
So, yeah, I just wanted to let that out and maybe take the advice of other catholics ?
Thank you

Good question! I think Easter last year

Damn, you are better than me. I was not to confession longer before you. So, are you nervous before you going there?

Yes, we understand your point: your parents are morons, so I feel sorry for you.

Now, troll off.

Annoying as it may be for you, the easiest thing to do is just to accept it until you're moved out. In the grand scheme of things it's really not that bad.

You could try explaining that you'd rather spend the time at home revising? If you'd rather spend the time sleeping, you may have a rather harder time of it...

Ultimately though, I rather think it comes down to a case of their house, their rules.

Depends on the church I suppose and your own religious views.

When was the last time you went to confession?
Last Summer.

And you do know that last Easter was almost a year ago... The TLG and mariagoretti will both have been at a similar time :mmm:

Sorry for explaining myself poorly. That isn't what I meant.
What I was saying is that if one is dragged to church by parents then the experience will vary depending on how 'good' the services are. Plus, if the 'child' is atheist or off another religion then it might understandably seem torturous.
Children don't always have the same religion as parents.

Hi,

I'm afraid I don't have any advice for you You're not alone though: my parents still try and make my sisters go to church, even though one is agnostic and the other is very firmly atheist :yes:

Yeah I get **** nervous if I'm going into the confessional, so these days I try and combine it with my spiritual direction sessions with a priest I know and respect and like

Yeah, I get that. But it doesn't have any effect on my reply :dontknow:
What I was saying is that if the parents are the "you must go to church every Sunday" type, then it's probably easiest to go along with it until you're old enough to move out.

Yeah, that is the tricky part. From what I heard the confession at begin had the task to be as some kind pshychology session in the early days. Also, to express concerns about personal problems to a confident person.

Anyway, from what I see I guess it is somehow difficult to be a religious christian in the modern-day western society. What does your friends say about your beliefs, if I may ask?

My friends are all quite supportive, even if they don't share the same beliefs themselves

Umm... so about 3 or 4 years. personally, I am more a agnostic but I always liked to go Sundays to church because there was always an opportunity to meet person who I did not see a long time ago or even to meet somebody new, since the place I live has a relative high percentage of religious catholics.

Well my friends know how much my faith means to me and how much it has helped me. So even if they think it's a load of bunkum, they don't attack me for it :nah:

Just for fun: http://www.buzzfeed.com/ellievhall/w...ciples-are-you

Guess who TLG got? :ninja:
I totally shouldn't have done this, I'm just putting off writing my lab report. but it's ok, this is a religious thing right...? :ninja:

I got St. James the Greater! You’re a thinker of deep thoughts and a sensitive soul continuously focused on improving yourself and the world around you. An introvert and a wanderer at heart, you’re happiest on the road or planning your next big adventure. You don’t care about material possessions, preferring to spend money on experiences rather than things.

Sounds good to me...
