Okay. Last night my mom told me that I "owe it" to my Priest to talk to him first. moms are good at the guilt game so I did leave a message this morning on his VM and he called me right back.
I won't do it because, in order to do so I will have to state that the RCC is heresy and if I make a statement like that, I risk damnation so I would be better off just not going to Church again than doing that.
I won't do it because the experience will be fun at first, like someone having an "affair" but then, the reality sets in and it is not so fun anymore.
I won't do it because the OC has problems too.
I will most likely become a lapsed Catholic, and most likely put myself at risk to be in Hell.
He said he was only joking about the last part- but I think he was planting seeds.
I thanked him for his time and thoughts and have been torn between laughing my head off and crying my eyes out.
I told my mom what he said. She said that's okay. Don't worry about what he said. He works for Satan anyway. I just wanted you to do the right thing.
I pay no attention to that commentary. But, I did feel better talking to him first so I could say I did the right thing.
He also mentioned that if I do such a thing- I will have some paperwork to do w/the RCC...
What for? Why?
Maybe he was kidding about that too.
Anyway, this is getting a bit much for me to think about.
