Alright my girlfriends anti sex, and Catholic (goes together well) and we futurise things alot, anywho basically she was asking if we stick together for along while if I would convert to Catholic.I said I might, but I don't think i'd belong their because I don't believe in the whole talking to the priest when you wanna be for giving etc. She told me that I didn't actually have to and thats all well and good.But then I told her that I still don't believe things such as non married sex is a sin and the sex is just for reproduction and that masturbation is a sin yada yada.Then she seems to get angry(well she caps her words this was over emails but that generall means shes angry)saying that she never said the Catholic church said it was a sin shes just anti etc.And I told her that I never said she said it, but I do look up crap like this on the internet and it does say the catholics are against it and I explained why.then she says the church really hasn't explained anything about masturbation, but isn't required to, I made a comment to her saying that shouldn't the church explain this anyway because if its sin shouldn't it be their job to war you of this sin before you do it instead of after?Then she starts saying that I don't understand what I'm talking about, and I don't get her basis.I am not Catholic true, but that doesn't make me ill-knowledge, theres still something called internet and I can look things up.But regardless of the fact, her religion should have nothing to do with me thinking its stupid that they don't tell you somethings sinful until after you do it.It's like if someone put a bomb in your car and somebody seen it, but they decide they will only tell you if you ask if there is a bomb in the car.but why is she being so defensive? its not like I am argueing with teh Catholic teaching, I was simply saying according to what I read why masturbation and crap is sin according to them.
Whats the problem?
Being a non-christian in a city that's full of them, I've encountered a lot conflicts with the religious side of things. It's a matter of what you really want. What's important to you? Being with someone who isn't gung ho about their religion is important to me. My last girlfriend is a big christian. Our differences in beliefs were okay as long as we didn't talk about it. But I knew in the long run, it would hinder our relationship. Besides, I don't think I could be with someone that thinks I'm going to hell after I die. When we broke up, she said she thinks I was right about our beliefs becoming a problem in the future. I think she's still hoping that I will convert one day. Anyway, I'm very particular in what I want in a woman. So I don't mess with it anymore.
