verging on sleep

26Apr11

Is it possible to finally renounce one’s religious upbringing, no matter how small a role it consciously plays in one’s life and no matter what corrosive influences it has been exposed to in the passage from youth? Even in strange reformulations (the crucifixion as God’s suicide) it seems to remain. Too much of a Christian even to Believe. Those bastard lines, forced to repeat by the weird religion teacher turned monk, still engraved in my head. The Catechism of the Catholic Church.
