You're gonna hate me for this. But 4th line up from the bottom; 'curch' / 'church' :)

Nice work on the leaflet, great idea, and thanks for putting all the effort in.

I think that's pretty normal... I sometimes have to re-type what I post 3 times, its so poorly written :oops: That's why I prefer to type longer posts or articles in Word so that I can spell check them before I post.

Hi all

I officially left the Catholic Church years ago - it is a sort of "de-baptism" process (a note is put next to your entry in the baptismal register to say that you have now left the church). The process is called a Formal Act of Defection, and the first step is to write to your local bishop requesting this.

I am still of the opinion that one should not request permission but write with a threat of action. Personally I feel I should not ask for permission to leave the CCl, thereby imparting some authorithy to the irrational malcontents, but threaten the insidious and corrupt anti human organisation with legal action simply for having the cheek to include me on record and in doing so therefore link me by association with their blood-soaked anti human history.

Writing to the Catholic Church for official confirmation from the Catholic Church to no longer be allowed to be considered a Catholic by their remit, is like asking the local witch doctors for a certificate that says you are excluded from living according to breaking chickens wishbones for an indication of the future.

There is nothing to be excluded from only the case on hand of letting the record show you object to being counted as an irrational twit.
Human communication is a very rickety rope bridge between minds. Its too narrow to allow but a few thoughts to cross at a time. Many are lost in the chasms of noise, suspicion, misinterpretation and shooting the message through dislike of the messenger.

Hi FXR

Thanks for responding to this.

I wouldn't have been requesting permission, just requesting that they cancel my entry in the baptismal record, since I had never agreed to have it there, and never would have. If they had responded in any way that implied they had any say in the matter, rather than it just being my choice, I certainly would have taken action.

Cheers

Well when I did it - It wasn’t because I was requesting permission from them, more like I was telling the catholic church that I did not want to be counted as one of them - as their records showed.
The church complains of persecution when it's not allowed to persecute.

It seems rather pointless. The fact that most of us are baptised Catholics cannot be held against us in a rational debate as the rite is performed at an age when sitting up is still a challenge. So it just seems like a petty way of p&*@ing off ones parents!

i've yet to see anyone express any strong ill-feeling towards there parents on any debpatism thread, its mostly directed the the church who continue to claim you.
