    Jesus

    Sooo, when did Jesus ever say to confess your sins to a priest? I thought he just said that "ask and it is forgiven" to God the Father alone?

    Put On the Spot

    Too Ashamed To Confess

    I don't remember any time in my life, from the time I was the tiniest child, when I wasn't a cross dresser. Women's clothing and behavior has been a fascination for me from the get-go. I always knew I had to hide it, but the guilt and sin aspects didn't kick in until puberty. I...

    Ha, Ha, This Is Funny!!

    I didn't really lie... I just didn't tell some things.. Ha ha, and once a priest told ME HIS problems and sins, this was pretty funny... And once a priest wasn't in the mood to listen my sins, so he just told me what I have to pray and God will forgive me. He even prayed some...

    Well...it Was More Like "Withheld the Whole Truth"...

    I was a very shame-ridden little kid.  I held myself to high moral standards because I didn't really believe in forgiveness, even though the Church said "if you ask God for forgiveness, you will get it."  I thought that notion was absurd, because then that...

    This Takes Me Back.

    I went to a Catholic school and I was sooo boring as a child.   I didn't lie, cheat, swear or steal.  So, I would lie to the priest during confession saying things like "I got smart with my parents" or "I lied."  Looking back now, that...

    What Child Could Possibly Sin That Much?

    I was raised Roman Catholic. It was utterly ridiculous that confession was mandatory.To satiate the perverted needs of the hierophants, I fabricated sins every week and never did penance.By the age of fifteen, I became a non-ritualistic Wicca.Ha!
