Ciara Brophy

I was brainwashed by priests and teachers into believing the catholic church was the only way, until I reached the age of 12. It was then I started to learn about the reformation and realised that nothing had changed. The Greed and hypocrisy against which Martin Luther had protested was still rife in the RCC. I also began to think for myself and realised that the very notion of a prescribed set of beliefs was just ludicrous nonsense, designed to control the masses. I would rather navigate life using my own moral compass, which, in my opinion, is far superior to the morals displayed by the RCC. Around 1991, I stopped attending mass and considered myself to be no longer affiliated with any religious organisation. I never expected the sickening revelations that were to follow, which would obviously serve to reinforce my decision to turn away from the barbaric, hypocritical, greedy organisation that is the RCC.
