Oh, of course. I'm still going to go through with my own Act of Defection. It's just rather obnoxious that their attitude, even when you reject their religion formally, through their own process, is "Oh well, you're still Catholic as far as we're concerned." Obnoxious, but not surprising, I guess.
They will still see you as a Christian/Catholic (whatever), but bear in mind that they also believe that someone rose from the dead, that there is an omni-potent invisble deity all around us, and that when they take communion and wine, they view it as the body and blood of the aforementioned 'zombie'.
I think they will be allowed to their opinion, for want of a better word, of you even after defection, just as we are allowed an opinion of a priest or a friend or family member as being deluded and a member of a farcical organisation.

My main worry is that, when I die, a priest gives me the last rites... I heard once that they are bound by the church to administer these to anyone if they are present. Can someone confirm this?

I find it rather disturbing to think that people put so much trust in these people, while some are sexually molesting and abusing young children. Religion is a reflection of the stupidity of the human race.

I just cannot get over the fact that the Irish Government paid compensation to the victims of abuse at the hands of the Christian brothers!! The Church has ample funds to pay for its mistakes/actions, and the mistakes/actions of it's members.

well if set mine in motion. Letter has been sent to the archbishops office where i was baptised and letters will continue to be sent every month or so until i get confirmation. regardless of whether they still believe you are still a catholic or not i still thought....why not just do it. its only a letter, takes 10 minutes to do and distracts me for a bit when at work!
