Craziest religious thing you’ve ever done??

As a teen, I held the arm of my friend while her aunt (prominent in the church) performed a spur of the moment exorcism on her. We knew she was possessed because the preachers daughter felt sudden nausea when she entered the room.
Reportedly 7 demons including some that cause gayness were removed from her. I sat there waiting for something cool to happen, like levitation or an earthquake.
I was disappointed

I ate the body of a man and drank his blood. If it wasn't, someone was bearing false witness.

?. Symbolized canabalism.

I went to a Right to Life rally. Those nutjobs turned me pro-choice that day. I think I was 15 years old at the time.

I wish I had something good to post on this, but alas, I've never been a believer so I've never had such experiences.

Smart man

When I was a youngster visiting cousins in rural Appalachia Virginia, we went to a tent revival meeting and a woman who was sitting close to me, holding and nursing her baby, suddenly started jumping up and down, talking in tongues, the baby screaming and the nursing tit bouncing around. It was a sight to witness.

That’s where I live! Lol.
The jumping, screaming, talking in tongues and my favorite when you are really tired and wanna nap you throw yourself on the floor (they call this being slain in the spirit) and you can just nap there undisturbed for the whole hour.

@BeccaVa That happened near Pennington Gap.

@jlynn37 I grew up around Tazewell and Bluefield VA.

@BeccaVa Both sides of my family originated in Lee County, VA.

When I was 5 or 6 years old my mother (who's a total nut) took me to a church that was completely crazy, the preacher tried to perform a exorcism on me and when he but his hand on my face screaming demons be gone I bit down on his hand hard enough to draw blood. I was banned from the church. Best day ever when I was told I wasn't going back there again.

Entered a Christian speech contest. Don't remember what subject I picked, but I had to rewrite it several times because the passages from the Bible didn't jive with the beliefs of the Baptist. Needless to say I lost.

As you should be. Get as far away from these people as you possibly can. They will control your life and they will ruin your life. Once upon a time they were my kinda church people. Never again.

I went to church a few times.

I married an asshole, because he and the elders told me that "god" said I should.

Ooops

@JustLynnie Nope, just stupid.

As a teen I let my friend at the time (her parents were Catholic), take me to Catholic midnight mass! (her parents expected her to attend). I was dumbfounded that people actually participated in that shit. I couldn't wait to get out of there. Neither could she.

Tried to become a priest.

I’m sorry friend. I’m sure you had good intentions

Getting baptized. Not good.

Now that's crazy. Did you believe at the time ?

I'm very happy to have never been influenced by a demon who causes gayness.

@valerina Oh, no!

As a prep school student, I was forced to attend daily chapel. Some of the sermons were actually kind of fun.

I said 'Shit!' in a Mormon temple and wasn't struck down. I also played Jesus in a reenactment of the last supper even though the people that asked me to knew my lack of belief.

I went to a pentacostal (spelling?) rendition of a modern day end of times production. It was awesome, in a fictitious action movie way. ‘Jesus’ was lowered from the ceiling on a platform with a machine gun! The cast started running around the congregation shooting blanks-loud!! I couldn’t believe it on a few levels!!!

Lol...At least they got scissor-sex-satan out of there...

My family was in a cult

As a teen I went to a tent revival. A lot like the movies, wailing and crying. I was young, a family with a cute daughter invited me. Enough said.

In the 8th grade, as part of "confirmation" to become a member of the church, I delivered a sermon to the entire congregation... roughly 300 people in the session. My introduction to real public speaking. But about something I didn't really believe in. I HEARD that as I delivered the words. Now I only (as a professional public speaker) talk about what I know.

Did have a chance to see some Wickens perform ceremonies no nakedness unfortunately though. They do have odd practices.

It's probably down to some perversion in me but I find the idea of nakedness and pagan sex really exciting. I think it's the idea of my natural body in a natural environment doing what comes natural.

When we were boys, a group of us young Catholics used to sneak into our local Protestant church and swing real hard on the bell ropes that called their faithful to church. Eventually, the Protestant minister got fed up and contacted the Catholic priest and complained. We were gathered in my parents' home to be given a good telling off from the priest. Lucky for us, he privately thought it was a great strike against the infidel Protestant church and we all had a good laugh about it. I'm sure we should have been punished but if we had been caught doing all the things we shouldn't have been doing.......
