Sometimes I fear this is the truth...

Comedian Louis CK's take on the Catholic Church.

Watching the intro, it's pretty similar to my own story. And at times I feel I could have written this material. This guy is hilarious.

The sad truth is, this nonsense has been going on for a long time. My mother once told me a common joke she heard as a child went like this:

Q - How do you get a nun pregnant?
A - Dress her like an altar boy.

And as I have told many friends and family as my wedding day approached: "I don't need a self-professed celibate man in a dress telling me how to have a successful relationship and a fulfilling love life."

I have met more "disgruntled" Catholics than any other group in religion. Yes, there's the math, etc. but think about it? Is this the truth?

I thought I had my tongue firmly planted in my cheek when I posted this. Sigh.

I was kidding about this, but I will say this: my mother did tell that joke. And I was never allowed to be an altar boy when we lived on the North Side of Chicago. My parents ever quite explaining why...

You may draw your own conclusions.
