I figured as much... They now refer to me as a heathen which doesn't bother me at all since they're technically heathens too for not going church since March of this year (and for other reasons that I won't mention.. yet, lol effin' religious posers). The priest supposedly asks about me the times they've gone without me. At first, I didn't believe them because they're devious little sneaks that love to drop guilt on me. But then my dad will go on and on about how the priest asks about me, and he'll him that he doesn't know what happened to me. The fact that they've stopped going to church makes me think they're ashamed of showing up because the priest really is asking about me, and they're too scared to tell him the truth: "Our daughter doesn't believe in Catholicism anymore."
My mom isn't so bad but my dad thinks I'm going to hell and will use anything to scare me into believing again. Pffft... as if stale beer and strippers with VD are really that scary. XD
