    Divorced Catholic

    Catholisism is not just a religion in my family, it is a lifestyle. It is how most of my family identify themselves. My Catholic roots run so deep that it determined who my family would be. I was adopted, and back in the 70's families could put certain stipulations on adoptions...

    Not Exactly A Church, But The Impact Is The Same...

    Those of the only cause that could ever matter to me have all been convinced to reject me... Why did I have to wind up in a world where the only thing important to me is only supported by psychos.

    I have never felt like I have a place. All I heard growing up was how I looked like a white boy, at times was a disgrace, and just never seemed to be me. It's killed me inside.
