Yes, how confessing sins to a priest alleviates guilt never made any sense to me. If one doesn't feel guilt about doing someone wrong, then they aren't a very good person. Saying a few prayers in penance can't take the place of actually trying to right the wrong done to the person or to humanity instead. One doesn't need religion for that. Just a good conscience -- and perhaps a good upbringing for doing the right thing, instead of going through life thinking we can just confess at the end and be rewarded.

Speaking as a former catholic, confession does not alleviate guilt. Of course, that might be part of the reason that I am a former catholic.

@piphirho We were forced to go to confession every Saturday, and I honestly didn't have anything to confess, so I'd make stuff up. It's really twisted to assume everyone in a family has sinned each week and needs to confess. Curiously though, my parents never had to go to confession, only us kids.


How can she be well into her 40's if she was born in 1985?
