    Is "nail gun" a euphemism for penis?

    I love me my Catholicism.... but the damage the Catholic Church continues to do to so many 3rd world countries whose masses are guilted into not using effective birth control methods is a real sticking point for me.

    also.... the catholic guilt has gotten me a ton of accomplishments in my life... plus I love feeling the guilt after every sechs act evar (even with my wife). its awesome and I wouldn't have it any other way... :teach:

    I can't quite reconcile that either. I mean, I get that religions benefit from having more believers (well, presumably), but when you get people having children they can't feed (3rd world) or won't love (ME-FIRSTERS), I don't get how that benefits society or glorifies God / Allah / Buddha / etc. To me it speaks of an empty faith.

    Best Homily:

    From 5th - 12th grade I went to a Hispanic parish, Our Lady of San Juan. Real Hispanic. Father Tom, best priest I've ever seen, he kept me so engaged. I actually enjoyed mass because of him and for no other reason. Really top notch guy. He delivered a sermon on machismo and it was one of the most moving homilys I have ever seen. Priest don't often show their personal feelings, or their faults, in front of the congregation. That day he sure did. I've never seen a priest become angry and that day his Irish complexion betrayed him. He was beet red through the entire homily. He spoke for 50 minutes straight about the dangers of machismo and how it can tear a family apart. Had a big impact on me and the way I treat women.

    Sadly, Father Kelly died 5 years after that. I don't even think he was 55. He went to help a member move a TV and while lifting his arms broke. He had really bad bone cancer and didn't make it a year past that. One of the few people who I've actually thought died before he could accomplish all of the good he was capable of. He was the only priest that really made an impact on me. Sad to see him go. He did so much for that church. It was funny to see an Irish man give these sermons in Spanish. Tremendous heart.

    I feel some guilt to this day about some of the things that I did after and during my time there. I didn't go through confirmation there. I went to the "rich" Catholic Church where I attended grade school. I felt like I betrayed that church just so I could have better social standing. I'm also have no faith in God. However, I really appreciated what religion can bring people individually and as a community. I really think we miss the community uplifting that mass can offer. If my wife and I ever have kids I want them to go to mass. I want them to have a faith in God. I feel cheated that I've never had that. I think Globe has expressed the same thought.

    /Drunk Ramble - I don't think I've ever told anyone about these things.

    good thoughts.

    yes, similar to my feelings - I have expressed that kids should be raised with beliefs, even if the parents don't hold them, it's best to give the kids a solid belief system, so they can decide for themselves later. that is how we are raising our kids
