I was baptised and brought up unwillingly before I was able to decide otherwise for myself. I was the brainwashed religious nonsense in primary and secondary schools, but at the age of 12, I decided I had enough. I don’t believe in any religions or religious beliefs. I feel it lawfully wrong and injust that children are unwillingly baptised and entered into a church organisation they know nothing of. Furthermore, the church in Ireland has a firm grasp on education, government and health services in the country which has lead to some serious issues and avoidable controversies over the last few years. I want out, and will not give up until I receive what is lawfully my decision, to leave the Catholic Church and live my life as a fully fleged athiest, free of any religious beliefs.
