I do not have to go any deeper into the religion that my grandparents practiced than the fact that the men are supposed to thank god every day that they were not born a woman.
Well -- that would not be terribly deep, now would it?

Q: Will you accept Jesus Christ as your personal savior and join the Church of God in Perfect Holiness Bible Prophecy Temple?

A: My grandparents were Catholic. My parents were Catholic. I am a Catholic.

Q: So just because your grandparents and parents were Catholic doesn't mean you have to be. What if your grandfather was a idiot, and your father was idiot -- what would that make you?

A: A member of the Church of God in Perfect Holiness Bible Prophecy Temple?
--- With due apologies to the member of the Church of God in Perfect Holiness Bible Prophecy Temple.

Sorry, Sam.

Cordially,
