Thinking back 15 years ago when I was in confirmation classes, at that age I just pretty much went with whatever the church said. I remember not fulling understanding everything, and also not knowing better at the time, to ask more contriversial questions. I didn’t realize that was the time to challenge myself and start thinking for myself. So it brings me to a few questions now that I’m older.
Do you think the church confirms at too young of an age?
Does anyone think we should be asking more forward questions? And, if one disagrees with any of the below questions, should we tell them they can not be part of the church?
Here are a few of those questions I think we should be asking -
Do you, or do you not support gay rights including gay marriage?
Do you, or do you not think women should be church leaders including women as priests?
Do you, or do you not favor artificial birth control?
Do you, or do you not think the bread and wine really becomes Jesus?
I think that in order to call yourself a true Catholic, this is what the church should be more demanding of in their teachings.
