Bless me Father I have sinned. It is 48 years since my last confession.

I confess that I do not believe in you or your God.

I confess that I don’t believe in Heaven or Hell.

I confess that I don’t trust your Priests or Nuns. I have seen what damage they can do to a young boys faith and innocence.

I confess I don’t believe in the infallibility of your Pope. Who for decades has hidden and protected the true sinners of the Church.

  1. I like this for its honesty and transparency. Once upon a time I would have wholeheartedly agreed with its statements, but that was when I misunderstood and confused human corruption of sacred texts with what the texts actually said. I too made a huge mistake in generalizing, taking a whole group to task for what a few transgressors were responsible.
    We must be wary of blaming a whole when only a part is guilty, and to understand why the guilty acted as they did. Neither men nor women were meant to live without normal sexuality. Those needs are natural and necessary; however, molesting a child is never necessary -whether male, female. I was abused by both birth parents and adopters… but I always knew that they were responsible for their dastardly deeds… for their choices.
    Allah/God/Le bonne dieu were my target to blame for the death of my daughter who had CHD and barley lived four months. Not only did I blame, I cursed and hated the ONE who dared give a child who never asked to be born such an inhumane existence. It took me over a decade to let go of my grief and my hatred- and my misunderstanding. It is not the one who allows congenital malformations, but the randomness of DNA and the ancestry which comes in consequence. As it turns out, the culprit of this event was most likely my Neanderthal ancestor who bedded with an ancient great grandmother … Without them neither I nor she would have been born.

    By the way, how can I follow your blog?

    1. Thanks for your comments. God doesn’t betray man does. My feelings are aimed at catholicism and the weak men who run it. I will not discuss religion or sacred text because that is a futile discussion and I don’t want
      to alienate anyone.

      I just started this blog and I really don’t know what I am doing. I thought you got a prompt to follow. I am following you.


      1. Hello Franco -(I know you are Franco and not tony from DA :))
        You are doing just fine with your blog-after all it is your story and no one else’s! I like your winter in NC!
        As for a prompt to follow your blog, I haven’t found one.. I thought that was odd, hence the question.
        I agree with your statement that it is man/woman who betray humanity and religions by corrupting, but not all.
        And guess what just popped up at the bottom of the screen? That sneaky Prompt! Now I am following you!
        You Franco -Me Rachida. #Adoptees-R-Us 🙂
