My father is going into a very risky surgery tomorrow.
He is a devout Catholic convert who converted to Catholicism as an adult.
He needs a quadruple bypass and it scares me to death because he is my hero and the person I look to for strength.
However, even though I call myself Catholic, I am for homosexual marriage, and think the abortion issue should be dealt with by women since it effects women more then men.
I know I’m considered bad in the Catholic faith, but my father does not deserve to be punished based on my decisions.
While I am not able to change my opinions while being honest, I want God to protect my father.
This is really me reaching out while being honest, so I pray for your kindness.
He taught me to be strong, but while I am firm in my beliefs, I don’t want to lose him because our beliefs differ.
Please don’t give me a hard time for being against certain Catholic teachings, I know I am, and this is not the time.
