Have you watched the film Dogma? It very nearly saved my beliefs and

Oh absolutely, that is one of my most favorite movies. I pretty much
love anything at all that pokes fun at Catholics. I just love it. One
should never be afraid to laugh at themselves. Kevin Smith is Catholic
which I'm sure everyone is aware of. I especially like Chris Rock's
line in the movie about how beliefs are bad because they are hard to
change. It's much better to have ideas.
I have an idea that God exists and I have an idea that God is not so
self-conscious that she will punish people for not "believing."
