Last day of the semester today.
Feeling a little relaxed, a group of older students (which includes me-grin) were having a chat at lunch time.
I was asked why I'm going to uni in my old age. So I explained that my religion discouraged it. Then I got chucked out and so now I can go.
Well, of course, everyone wanted to know which religion and why they do that etc. Which I duly explained.
Then this older guy pipes up and says that he had an experience like that last sunday.
He's Catholic, but also fading (in his church he says lots have left over child sexual abuse).
But he still likes to go to the church sometimes and just sit. So last sunday, he went and just sat in a pew, not doing the customary obeisance to the 'host.' The priest came over and sat beside him and said, "B why didn't you do obeisance." B explained that he did believe that it was Christ anymore.
So the priest said, "well in that case, B, may I take you to the cardinal and explain that you wish to undergo voluntary ex-communication.
I couldn't stop laughing - asked why, I said my lot wouldn't let anyone resign, they have to take action to chuck you out. You're lot invites you to chuck yourself out.
Its all the same isn't it. If you do not conform - then you are OUT.
As I keep saying, its not just the witnesses that are up themselves - its the whole root and branch of this offensive religion (Christianity).
