Can I Formally Ask a Priest to Excommunicate Me?
Something I've always wondered.
I was "confirmed" in the Catholic religion against my will -- since my parents forced me to.
I am not a Catholic now, and when I go to my friends' Catholic weddings and events, I refuse to pray or accept "communion".
Would I be able to go to a Catholic Church and ask for an excommunication? What do you think a priest would say? Do you think he would even do it? Would he need to draw up some formal papers?
And could I have some Catholic ritual to excommunicate me? Afterwards, I'd have a hell of a party!
