Simple answer is I am a Roman Catholic... Let's face it the Catholic Church is the traditional organisational "official" enemy of Abortion and Gay Marriage. The Church's arguments against both are my own. I read it all and agreed with it, end of story.
Which is probably a side reason I also like Eva Peron and other Catholic politicians(like PM Tony Abbott and even JFK).... Converted fully in 2007. I was heavily involved with my CBD based Church until 2014(when I shifted to Perth). Was the sole Acolyte for the Sunday Night Mass from 2008-2014 and had good friendships with several Priests as a result.
I have copies of several pro-life books I have enjoyed reading(both Catholic and Protestant). I have a catechism on my shelf and my personal "Family" Bible is a copy of the Douay-Rheims Challoner Version....
My dad was lapsed Catholic but still loved the Church anyway(came back into communion before passing), hated "the bad-egg(paedophile) Priests" though and thought they were "wrecking it". My Parents had their reasons for opposing both and they communicated them effectively with me as a child.
I was not raised in Public School so I was never exposed to the state indoctrination and got high marks in Religious Education, English and English Literature(did fine in IT and loved French, but sucked at Maths and did "ok" in Science subjects). I went to a traditional Anglican Private Boys School because my parents could just afford it and wanted both sons to have a strong classical education(which even included learning basic Latin). Was previously in a Catholic Primary School(till grade 3).
I read the bible fully at a very young age(about 8-9, it was the easy reading "Good News Edition" designed for older Children and ESL Adults, also read the KJV later on) along with many other varied books(including Jurassic Park, my favourite fiction novel and near-favourite movie too).
I am indeed Roman Catholic in belief.... No need for further explanation as to my political reasons. I argue my political reasons all the time. This shit never helps the poor, never helps society in general and the anti-establishment enthusiasm never ever lasts(when one becomes the Establishment, the opposing view becomes the anti-establishment view)
