Still....as fucked-up as the Catholic church is, particularly here in Australia in the past year with the furore surrounding Archbishop Pell 'n all, and as much as I despise the Vatican hierarchy who refuse to change with the times....it's something that I'm proud to be, in a weird sort of way.
Probably wouldn't have mattered which of the many Christian denominations I joined....I suppose it's the faith that's the important thing.
I think Salma Hayek said it best in Dogma.
"...it's not about who's right or wrong- no denomination's nailed it yet. It doesn't matter what you have faith in- just that you have faith."
