I own a sincere apology to everyone who has ever seen me on my knees in a “house of God”…
… to everyone who has ever seen me taking communion, serving as an altar boy, reciting the Lord’s Prayer, entering a confessional, making the sign of the cross, singing in the choir, putting money in the collection basket, saying grace before dinner, calling a priest father, and reciting the pledge of allegiance.
I renounce ALL of it.
I feel embarrassed for my ignorance, blind obedience, and conformity… for having fallen for, and having perpetuated, the scam.
I feel especially deep remorse for my complicity… no matter how innocent it may have been… which granted my tacit endorsement of the whole poisonous enterprise.
For all the above and more, I am deeply sorry.
Please forgive me.
