    Beeyotch, if you click on each link, it leads to a page that summarizes every one of the terms.

    Your son wants to? Eek, I used every excuse to get out of catechism.

    Yeah but it's different when you were raised with it and had to spend your squirrely age (something apparently no longer expected of small children) sitting still at mass.

    That's what I get (and expected) for sending him to Catholic school...and after having raised him without any religion at all, which is enough to make anything a novelty. But honestly, where I live now it's the only way he's gonna get a halfway decent education, so I'm willing to accept the fallout. It's not like it's Scientology or something. I was always of the mind that he could do what he wants as he gets older in regard to religion as long as it doesn't end up with something crazy like denying my grandkids a needed medical treatment.

    That's funny because I was looking at a couple different schools in my area and I'm leaning towards the Catholic one for my son as well.

    Wow, I got a 100% match with Mormon and an 88% match with Jehovah Witness.

    Actually, I am a Christian, and I attend a bible-based non-denominational church.

    My religious beliefs coincide with some of the scariest religious "groups" I've ever encountered!!!!
