Guess i was lucky my grandmother had a "screw it" kind of attitude toward anything religious

Precisely. Church is ALL about feeling, trust me!  Myself, i grew up with the church in my back yard so to speak, when i went to my grandmother. Just over the fence i had cemetery, bell house, church itself with the mural paintings, watching staff coming in and out.. as very young of age i have desacralised all of this, and purged it from my system (although i cannot remember ever believing) and never could get influenced by the general pop culture feeling of shame and humility that everyone seemed to assume only at the precise fraction of second as they passed through the doors of the church.

Because, belive me, just as soon as someone left those enclosures, back to being they're old self, vicious and hateful as always. But noo.. in church God is watching. Put your head down. Dont talk! Dont smile! Dont smirk, for God's sake!, dont be to dignified, God won't apreciate it :)) And what is worse, the worse of all. Priest walks among people with an overbearing stance and that stupid condescending look in his face.

 i always thought that a person has power only as long as there are people willing to be subdued by power. Same goes for anything that has power

I started public school in 9th grade. I can remember razzing the crap out of our CCD "teacher" about the "virgin" birth. Ninth graders weren't buying. I'm afraid we distressed the poor fellow no end, being at the peak of our well-learned politesse  at that point.

What the hell is even the point of daily mass?  Weird.  I mean there was other stuff one or two other days of the week, aside from mass on Sunday, but daily seems ridiculous.

14 is right around the age I came out of the closet as a non-believer, to my mother.  At least I didn't have to go to CCD after that, since I had declared that I wasn't making my Confirmation, but I was stuck with the rest of the crap until I turned 18.

@ Joseph - you don't know how lucky you are. Through eighth grade I had to go to mass every DAY. Been to scores of funerals of people I didn't even know. After the age of 14, not so much.

Yeah, I have a couple of friends who are weird like that.  I have one friend who is just as anti-religious as I am, but she loves going to Catholic mass, for some reason.  When she went on vacation around Europe, she went to at least a dozen different cathedrals.

I love old, medieval architecture, myself, but I had quite enough mass, growing up Catholic.  I was forced to go to mass every single week until I was 18, when I could tell my parents that I wasn't going anymore.

I think I would rather visit all of the old castles, if I felt the need to go running around Europe like a tourist, for some reason.

I know what you mean about the spooky feelings in places like that.  The silly religious sorts think that it's the spirit of God or whatever.

No, it's just that the people who build churches discovered, centuries ago, how to make them evoke feelings of awe in the people who come inside.  There's a reason that pipe organs are so popular in churches.  Those long, loud, deep vibrations mess with our heads.

And yeah, if you want to see men in dresses, I know a few night clubs where you can see a lot of those, too.  No need to go to a church for that.

Hi Joseph !! Well, im not sure what religion they lean towards to more, but yes. its pretty much the same thing. I had a friend coming over from Germany and she visited a bunch of curches, the really older ones that get turists ( i dont know why she'd waste her vacation like this) but she innocently told me that she felt strange, like a massive pressure coming upon her, turned sad and also scared her a bit. =)) haha ha Thats because its depressing i told her!!! Dont go there!! unless you want to look at dark dampy, several century worth of candle smog and overglorified men in dresses =))

Patricia, those would be new subjects here. Is it so easy to have the ideal marriage?  

Comment by Joseph P on January 29, 2015 at 4:55pm

Not the sort of stereotypical Greek wedding, Bizu?  I had always associated the two, since the Greeks tend to lean more towards Orthodox Christianity.
