    Afraid of Church

    I am terrified to go to church. Not that lightning bolts would hit me or the entire congregation would look at me like I was a cyclops or anything, In fact I am very spiritual and I was raised Catholic. Going to a Catholic church does not frighten me at all...I love the smells...
