Happy… no Easter Vigil, or something, y’all.

Well, it’s been a decade since I rejected Catholicism. I still feel content that I did so, knowing that I made the right choice since I disagreed with all of its doctrine… and I mean all of its doctrine. You have to agree with all of it, or at least agree to submit to all of it, in order to “become” Catholic as an adult convert, so me “going through the motions” to shut someone up would have culminated in me lying to people at various stages in the process (RCIA, as previously mentioned) and I didn’t want to waste my time or anyone else’s time dragging that whole process out, especially because Catholicism artificially inflates their numbers by “not allowing you to quit” once you are on their rolls. And furthermore, I didn’t even want to crack the door open of “well, Bub needs to be baptized because that’s what our family does! and you’re the custodial parent, so we need to get your consent for it some way! and the easiest way to do that is just to shotgun convert you!”.

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, anyone who is getting… certain public benefits that may come due for a renewal automatically has those benefits renewed for the length of time that they had normally been getting them, so my medical insurance through the state was renewed for another calendar year. I am glad that I don’t have to worry about that. I mean, until they find some excuse to take it away from me. Well, that.

My state governor apparently wants to sign an executive order next week “helping businesses start to get back to work here soon”. In a global pandemic. Okay. Once you start to talk more about that, I’ll see what you “have in mind”, and then I guess I’ll see how hard I have to go in on you like Barret Wallace from Final Fantasy VII on your social media because we still have someone in power who does not understand science.
