Hello, my name is Sam and I'm new in this group. I'm trying to make a very difficult decision. I was raised Catholic, but it never really felt right to me. I didn't want to get confirmed, but my parents pushed me into it. In junior high, when I realized I was a lesbian, I knew what the Catholic beliefs were in that area. I spoke to a priest from another church, and he said that if that's how I feel, maybe Catholicism isn't right for me. My aunt left the Catholic church to be a Methodist when she was in college, and, after researching that denomination, I think that's what I want to do. The problem is, when I brought this up to my mother, she said that it hurt her feelings very much that I would reject the religion she tried to teach me, and my grandmother still thinks only Catholics can get into heaven. Am I even making the right choice? I mean, it feels right, but I don't want to make my mother so upset.
