I do believe in God. I was born in a Catholic family. I don't think everything that the Catholic Church teaches is right. I do go to Mass though, very often. There is something there that gives me peace and strength...and I do pray all the time. I gotta say I love being in a Catholic Church...it's so beautiful.
I definitely do feel God's presence.....I wouldn't pray and keep going there if I didn't.
I also went to Medjugorje when I was a boy....I remember when I got out of the car I felt this amazing peace and immense love.....it was amazing. The best experience in my life. Later as a teen I read more about Marian Apparition and I found out this is a common thing people experience in places like that.
I had a little trouble during my teen years because I thought that because of what I felt in prayer and Medjugorje it meant that I should follow all the rules of the Catholic Church...but then I relaized there is no way to do that...and I relaized being gay is part of who I am. So today I don't go to confession nor do I think being gay is a sin......definitely don't believe in the whole eternal hell thing....I think we will all go to purgatory and then heaven. I did feel heaven in Medjugorje and let me tell you guys it's amazing. I think God let me experience that to show me how much he loves me and to give me hope through life....because there were some horrible things that happened to me after that and that experience definitely did help me to get through everything.
