Have you ever had a fuuny experience while going into another person’s religous culture?

    Yeah I went to my friend’s Mormon church. It was really weird because after the service the young girls and boys separated to go to Sunday school. I went with the young womens group and we had a woman come and teach us how “women have their place in the household” and then they taught us how to fold socks properly. I asked my friend what the boys were doing meanwhile and she said they were studying the Bible. The church had paintings in the hallways of Jesus visiting the aztecs in Mexico.
    …I’m not joking. It really freaked me out.

    When I watched my born-again Christian friend speak in tongues at a church. (I had to go with her.. School project.). It sort of freaked me out.

    Really.. It’s sort of a culture shock every time I have to go to church now. Each time I do it, it just gets.. Weirder.
    I don’t go often, though. Only when there are funerals, weddings and the likes. However, I’ll probably have to do it again in July 2009, when my cousin is going to have her confirmation. She REALLY wants the whole family to be there. Theists, atheists, whoever… Yarghf.

    Also, when I visited a mosque with my class.. That was quite an odd experience. We saw the muslims reciting prayers, on their prayer mats. And they showed us every room in the building, answered all our questions.. I felt alien. But it was kind of exciting too!

    When I was in high school, I used to go to morning mass with my best friend and her father and sister so that we could get to school early to mess around. One morning I took communion just because I felt silly being the only one who wasn’t. I thought my devout Methodist grandmother would have a stroke when I told her. It turns out that it’s considered a pretty big deal. Who knew?

    I haven’t, but one of my former sponsees was diddled by a priest from age 7 to 10.

    Disrespectful? You betcha! About as much as you and your friends brother yucking it up. Btw, he was making the Universal Symbol for cunnilingus.

    Back in Catholic high school, I was at a mandatory Catholic liturgy on Ash Wednesday. The priest actually said “And now it’s time to distribute the asses.” Then after a long pause as people looked at each other in disbelief, said “Er, the ASHES. The ashes.”

    A few summers ago I was at a book store in New Orleans and saw some candy bars on a table, along with a bottle of run a few other things. I thought, “Hmm, I think I’ll buy this candy bar,” and started to reach for it. Then I pulled my hand back quickly, because I suddenly realized that I was at a voodoo altar.

    Back in college, my fraternity was doing some philanthropy work for a local Jewish community center. Lunch time came, and their cafeteria was serving burgers. One of the christians said “Hey, do you have any cheese for these?”
