My mom is so anti-Catholic that she literally blames any behavior that she sees as strange or abnormal on the fact that a person is Catholic. For example, if someone is a bad driver and has a Catholic school sticker on their car, then they are rude because they are Catholic. Her friend is having a baby with Down’s because she’s a “good” Catholic. Her other friend visits pyschics because “she’s Catholic and Catholics are superstitious” My dad was apparently not a great lover because he was “raised Catholic” Her neighbors called her a dirty little girl when she was little because “they were Catholic”
It goes on and on and on. I defend Catholics and Catholicism all the time and am told that I am only drawn to it because of the negative old world Italian influence of my fathers family (who I rarely saw).
Does anyone else know people like this or am I especially blessed? :bigyikes:
