1. "True happiness" is a term that can mean different things to different people. For ME, true happiness is a great feeling I have, which comes from the freedom of being able to make my OWN life choices without some nosy Catholic Church cleric telling me I'm committing a so-called "sin" for making those choices.1. Dont confuse true happiness with that temporary feeling we associate with happiness. You seem hell bent on living that utilitarianism life so go ahead, let the experience speak for itself.
2. Just stop hating on the CC because youve had issues in the past because theres a reason its lasted 2000 years.
2. If you're telling me to stop expressing more verbal criticism of the Catholic Church, forget about it. I'll criticize that toxic institution all I want. Whether or not YOU approve of my doing so is irrelevant.
Secularism = FREEDOM. No dogmas required.
