Sounds like to me you're still feeling guilty for turning away from the Catholic Church.
Your intrinsic bias speaks to you loudly and convincingly. I remember what it felt like, having my thoughts be determined by such a mindset.
Don't turn away from Christ.
From my perspective, Christ turned away from me long before I realized he and the trinity refused to protect millions (yes, millions) of children from abuse. The Protestant Reformation was the right move away from the original church, but abuses continued throughout the hundreds, nay thousands, of denominations that subsequently came from it. This is not debating church doctrine, this is recognizing and acknowledging history and how these institutions have shaped our society, both positively and negatively. Until these institutions are willing to step forward and acknowledge the harm they've CAUSED, the benefits provided by these institutions will always be considered minimal in my book.
The Catholic Church isn't the only place you can find Him.

No fnkcing ----. And philosophically, that's a major issue for me. There are thousands of variations of Christ's religion, yet logically, only one can be the truth. Odds are, none of them are the truth just as the other religions. None of these people or their beliefs are exceptional save for the relative aspect on the universal scale (i.e., their the only ones that we know of in the universe).
I don't need you to guide me anywhere near Christ. I need you to acknowledge the harm that has been done to certain populations in the name of upholding Christ's will.
