My father has a great disdain for all those who practiced organized religion as he believed it was built to create homogeneity among the masses to make it easier to control the working class.
I was in college when I converted to Catholicism. I was baptized, had my first communion, and was confirmed while practicing.
I left the faith after practicing for around 2 years, in which i attended weekly bible studies (sometimes these were group sessions and sometimes one on one with a nun) and weekly mass. Ask me anything!
