yes it does. you didn't choose to be catholic, you were RAISED catholic and continue to be catholic. Therefore everything that you believe in was force-fed to you and you still believe it anyway.^ what does that have to do with anything? Just because I'm catholic doesn't mean I can't think for myself.
Edit: I just saw you edited in more. I chose to become an adult in the catholic world. That is why I went through conformation. I chose to go to the classes and gatherings. I even choose if I want to go to church or not. So I am not being force fed. There is an initial push like something in everyone's life but you choose the rest of the way. You choose what you believe and what you don't believe. You don't follow everything exactly what the preist says because everyone no matter what has their own personal bias. Choose to remain catholic after experiences and observations.
