No, I AM cranky.
At first I thought the reaction to my mass column was simple concern for my lack of faith but slowly it has become apparent that I am being judged – yesterday I got a letter telling me I was a smart arse. Others closer to home are definitely not impressed. It’s like I said, instead of declaring a lack of faith in God and the fallacy of original sin, that I’m running off to India with my lover and the family can look after themselves until I’ve found myself…oh and I’m selling the house to fund my tour and they can go live with grandparents.
ALL I said was I don’t believe this stuff but for the sake of peace I’ll go along with it as far as the children are concerned. So, you don’t have me but you have my money and you can have the kids. But that wasn’t enough. If the judgment doesn’t stop, I’ll start getting more militant. What happened to the narrative that god-fearing catholics were being oppressed by the secular media? I’M the only one getting a hard time. Well I’m definitely not going back. I’m “out” now so it would be an insult to show up again. HE can bring them in future….
