The Catholic Church does not represent my own spiritual beliefs. I am spiritual in my own personal way, but I am not religious. I do not believe in a Catholic afterlife, I believe in good energy and good will. The Catholic Church own so much of my Country, yet very few people I know actually follow the teachings of the bible. They go to mass when someone has died, when someone is married or a baby is born – maybe on Christmas Eve out of tradition rather than love for Jesus Christ. I do not want to be associated with this Church; A church that has opposed homosexuality and contraception, yet has covered up priest molestation of young boys and the deaths of abused mothers and their babies. I do not want my existence to be another number on their records to use as proof of their power and influence. Not me. I want out.
