There are a lot of things Grumpy Parent and I do not agree on. For the most part we agree to disagree, unless Grumpy Parent is angry then it all comes out to prove how horrible I am. I have perfected the art of just tuning my parents out, I spend less time being miserable that way. However, tonight was a bit surprising...

My family is in no way real religious...heck when we first started going to church I was behind in all the sunday school classes. Thus the oldest child in them. Eventually Grumpy Parent stopped going, I don't know why, and I only made my Commuion. Which irks Grumpy Parent cause I never did confirmation, oddly enough sib did. Nothing big though, heck we don't even go to church anymore.

Now what's the big deal right? Well, Tonight the topic of religion came up and I made the comment about not being catholic. That set Grumpy Parent on a tangent about being born catholic and not having a choice and all that. It got to the point they wouldn't give it up, insisting I was catholic and accusing me of just trying to upset them. I never took Grumpy Parent to be one of those strict religious types...this discussion got so intense for them.

They said some things that once agian made me realize they weren't as tolerant of different things as I thought. At one point I just deiced to say nothing, any other statement just seemed to aggravate Grumpy Parent. Of course this lead them to believe I was mad at them, which truthfully I wasn't. But I wasn't going to say that yes I am a Catholic just to appease said parent.

Don't get me wrong, I believe in a higher power but I don't know if I want to worship in the Catholic way. I haven't found a way of worship yet but I now realize it isn't something me and Grumpy Parent are going to agree on. And heaven help me if I convert to a different religion.
