I only remember older people doing that. Pretty sure it was a pre Vatican council thing when everything changed in the 60’s and they stopped giving mass in Latin.

They’re the architects of the Christianity everyone knows, sooooooo Protestants just slightly reformed what was already bullshit.

Constantine is Christianity and he died not believing lol.

Cause they’re the only ones who know what’s going on. All the young people are watching them for cues on what to do

I think it’s mainly a thing that older Italians in NY/NJ do.

They make the sign of the cross and then they put their index finger behind the thumb (making a tiny cross in their hand) and kiss it. So they’re kissing the cross after they make the sign of the cross.

Then they go out and whack someone…

Don’t be so hard on yourself. You probably just weren’t his taste.

One of my wife’s priests was a pedo. But he never had any interest in young girls so she was safe. As a kid, she told her parents he was a creep. But, they just assumed he was gay like 80% of American priests.

Father Michael HANDS did the world a favor and killed himself in jail while awaiting sentencing.

What amazes me is not the fact that you openly encourage suicide but that you are atheist as well.

THAT!!

Thank you all for solving the mystery for me.

I suppose that’s true.

Although I do remember this one old lady. She’d bring in a trash bag full of old fabric, clutched to her chest as tight as she could. Whispering g to herself in gibberish the whole time. Apparently she thought it was the shroud of Turin. Wouldn’t sit in the pews or follow along. Just paced around the back of the church during service. No eucharist, no nothing. Nobody ever stopped her.

The rest were normal though lol.

Like most religions, the ideals are usually OK, then god damn man takes advantage and corrupts them

Oh and a big RIP to my boy Father Crines.

Old man was losing his mind at the end. Tripped on his way up to the altar and blurts out, “this goddamn floor is crooked!”.

Last time we saw him.
