What I would like to talk about today are hypocritical catholics/ Christians. Now before you gather the pitchforks and torches may I just say that this does not apply to all of them (just a lucky few). I have met some really decent people who believe so completely that it is hard to doubt them.
However when I was 16-17 I was in youth group with 2 girls and 3 boys. Except for one boy (who never did anything to hurt me) they were terrible people and even worse Catholics. Those fakes destroyed my faith in high school and led me down a path that I don’t think I would have chosen on my own. The people I though were good Catholics were back stabbers and gossips. Now I am not claiming to be perfect cause we all know that I am not…Yes I can be a bitch and yes I don’t take crap from people and yes I love a good gossip session but that doesn’t make me evil. What that youth group of people did was worse than anything I could have dreamed up.
A 17 year old girl stabbing her supposed best friend in the back in order to get a date with the guy she liked. A grown man emailing a 16 year old and telling her to keep it a secret from everyone including his son. A self righteous boy making fun a girl because she had a crush on him. I could go on but to be honest the details are beginning to fuzz. I lost my faith when I was 17 years old because I learned the hard way that everyone is in it for themselves. They all want something and the sooner you know what it is, the better you can protect yourself.
