That sister looks like a mister
@MMSieBreeze, is that why you kissed her?
(I'm sorry, it rhymed so I obviously had to)
@Dephenistrator, and now i have this strange blister
@MMSieBreeze, guess you played the naughty twister
@MMSieBreeze, looks like a young David Arquette.
Is this assuming guilt and shame for doing something horrible is bad? Like we should be proud we of crimes.
@Dephenistrator, I think this person’s problem with Catholicism stems from the fact that sometimes Christians tend to impress guilt heavily on people that really haven’t done anything that bad
@DinklebergStinks2000, no ine should ever do that, but this caricature is too exaggerated and bias. Aim for people doing this on a different level than a whole religion. We have politicians guilt shaming whites, we have animal rights and environmental groups guilting whatever they can think of, we have vegans, it's a pretty common shít thing people do to isolate it to one group. Again, shaming people unnecessarily is bad, not condoning that.
@Dephenistrator, I think the purpose of confession is to humble yourself by admitting fault.
@DinklebergStinks2000, you misspelled Catholics.
@Dephenistrator, yes, but in the catholic experience masturbation is bad and who needs that guilt as a kid
@CKMe, that's a separate issue from confessions, and i agree masterbation shouldn't be guilted but the idea of confession isn't terrible and teaches accountability. You get guilted over any number of issues a day even outside of religion. Unnecessary guilting is not in any way a monopoly for religions.
After 18 years of Catholic education, the best way I can explain Reconciliation is this: God already knows what you did and forgives you. Which seems really dumb to us. Like, why have rules and sins if you’re gonna just forgive us when we fvck up? The answer is that Reconciliation isn’t for telling God what we did wrong, it’s for us to admit to ourselves what we did wrong and try to better ourselves by admitting our faults
@Dr Sam Beckett, my boi you’re forgiven
@Dr Sam Beckett, as a practicing Catholic, I also concur with your statement. Confession is about acknowledging your sins and actively trying to do better
Social Justice in a nutshell: you are never forgiven, you will obey.
Tell me how you been a bad boy....
Actually confession was started in the Catholic church for the same reason Scientology does "Cleansing" sessions. It is a way to gather information and dirt on its members and prominent people of society so they can shame members to do anything and blackmail influential people.
