okay i AM a Franciscan catholic. what does this mean?
means i follow more in the beliefs and influences of st. francis of asi si, who said “god so often reveals himself in people we do not want to like.” in other words, don’t let the sins of evil people turn you into an evil person. basically about always doing the right thing, being the better person etc.
I WAS BAPTIZED.
as an infant, in holy water by a priest.
however my family DOES NOT believe in the bible. this is where it gets confusing.
we all believe in the teachings of jesus, and that he was a real person. but the bible is mythical and many parts of it are evil and sexist. my little brother is gay, and i’m bi. so that alone makes us against it.
also my father learned later in his life priests he had as teachers in catholic school were molesters. and my mother is sick of women being undermined in the church.
my mother is paegan catholic, this meaning she pays attributes to the old paegan earth female spirit religion that catholicism branched off of.
i love easter, i think it is the most important holiday in our faith, a day of redemption and starting a fresh. i’m going to mas in the morning, and spending the day with my family, so when mean girls from my old college go out of their way on easter of all days to be mean to me it’s shocking. jesus said “love thy neighbor love thy self” simple as that. hiding behind social media to say hateful things you wouldn’t dare say in public is sickening.
i am catholic, i don’t believe in the bible, i believe in some aspects of it.
if anyone has a problem with that i beg you to never fucking talk to me cause odds are if you go out of your way to be hateful you are a hateful person.
my old college was catholic, i get raped and NO ONE cares. so yeah sorry i have trouble always going to the band wagon for traditional catholic values.
