    What about being made to go to church!!!!!

    Especially in my case where the preacher were so dull,
    and it was the same format every week...

    Yet my parents dragged me out of bed..!!!!!

    Now that I am 20 years older, I rarely go to church-- if there
    was some upbeat --not a "by the books" minister,
    maybe have a band with some gospel music--- then I might go!!!

      Yeah, I was stuck in catholic school for a couple years and forced to go to church. Wow was it boring, I am just not a church person I guess.

        Being forcefed a strict diet of church and family values as a young child only inspired me to become a born-again atheist.

          What I hated the most about being forced to go to church was having to miss the USA Cartoon Express and All American Wrestling.

            My sister and I got forced to go to Church almost every Sunday.

            We only got to eat out at restaurants on Sundays after mass, so we enjoyed that. It was also the day that we could do something as a family.
            We always hit Red Lobster and the Old Country Buffet. After that we usually hit the mall to sham for the rest of the weekend and look for deals.

            Eventually, it got to the point where we just went to Church on our own.

                  For some reason I've gotton bored of the actual church atmospher. I would rather site at home and read about the bible or attend an actual class on it rather that sit with people who you know are not all really saved. Anyway enough with my rant.

                      My parents weren't and still not church people.So I never had to worry
                      about being pulled from bed to go to church.I did go to a Catholic
                      School for 1 yr in Kindergarten went to Mass every Wed had to wear
                      a Uniform.Only went there for 1yr cause they didn't offer what I needed.
                      My sister and I did go to summer bible school for a few yrs.For awhile we
                      did ride along to our neighbors Church.Other than that it really wasn't
                      something that was a part of our lives.
                      It's OK, next time I'll make you listen. I wish that it were in the power of all children to say that to their parents and to know that indeed they would be heard as we were in those wonderful days on Waltons Mountain.Narrator The Waltons (From the Runawa

                        I am now an atheist, but as a child when I was about 8, I would go to youth group, I remember walking in and out of the room as they did boring bible stories and hiding in the long grass and also the bibles and prayer books that were in the back of the church pews, putting them on the ground and using them as pillows.
                        I hated everything about going to youth group, except for doing the craft at the end of the day.

                            My parents were good, they let me practice my religion of devout atheism and never tried to force relgion on me. Thus Sundays were filled with reading the ciculars and comic sections of the news paper and cartoons. Far more productive than church.
