I became an atheist in 6th grade at my catholic school when I learned that eating meat on Friday was a made up sin by the church. I thought they were suppose to be helping us get to heaven, not making up new sins to stop us
Hello! Another former Catholic here. I realized I was agnostic (lean toward atheism) in the 6th grade after being fed all that BS for years and that I didn't believe what I was being taught. When we were told that it was a good thing that St. Maria Goretti chose to be killed by her rapist instead of letting him take her virginity, I was like..get the F out of here.
