Are Catholics Hypocrites?

I’ve always been told to accept others, no matter what race or religion.  My mom taught me that it didn’t matter who you are or how you came to be.  As long as you did your best and never gave up.  To this day I follow that.

 

I’m catholic.  Born and raised.  If anything, my church taught me to love others and to respect them no matter who they are.  I went to a catholic school when I was little and I remember all of the kids making fun of the blacks, of the gays, and of people who were just different.  They laughed and laughed and laughed.  Some treated the blacks, the gays and the different as if they were lepers.  And if I’m not mistaken, our bible specifically talked of the lepers and how no one went near them except for Jesus.

 

My church has taught me that Jesus is forgiving and that he loves everyone no matter what.  The thing I want to know, is how come gays are not allowed to love each other?  How come blacks are still seen with fear?  How come the different are still cast as outsiders?  Don’t we love them?

 

Catholics are hypocrites.  Every moment I spend with a catholic, I feel sick.  They are lying, they are cheating and they are draining people’s minds to believe that they are the best and that people should join their church and that people should give a minimum of a dollar to light a single candle right on the alter.

 

If I remember correctly, Jesus cried seeing the market in the temple.  It was a holy place.  A place only for God.  I was taught that money is of the devil’s work.

As children we are taught that God will always love you.

As adults we are taught that God will punish you harshly because at that age we should understand our actions.

Adults are stupid.  They may be older, but not all of them are wiser.

 

I’m still a catholic.  I always will be.  I will pray to my God but I will not be a hypocrite.  I will take my knowledge from what I have learned, from the people who mean the most to me and do with it what I will.  I’m not going to just sit here and follow my fellow Catholics.  I refuse to think like them.
