Initially, because my mom raised me Catholic.

Ultimately, I decided to stay for the most important reason: Because it's true.

Looking for old opinions?

Hoping no one notices there is no Texas?

i learned the hard way it is true :(

but hey, at least I learned.. You wouldn't believe HOW HARD it was though.. that lesson on how everyone should be Catholic

I know protestants hate hearing that kind of thing, but oh well. I am safe now (not talking to one face to face)

laugh

I would be very hesitant to say that to any protestant.. that he or she and everyone should be catholic.. might get something thrown at me.. something tangible like a rock :)

I can't imagine any protestant, even if there were one such around, who would possibly chuck a rock at someone for saying that.

I was more into Ironic, there.

The key is the parenthetical expression.
