Roman Catholic. Yeah, I know what you mean. How about those "Christian" churches that close on Christmas Day? How demented is that?

I do believe in some traditions and I do follow many of "God's Laws". For instance, I do not murder, I follow the Golden Rule, I don't commit adultery or assist anyone else in doing it, etc.. I was raised very strict so much of this just comes naturally to me. However, taking a day of rest to worship seems very pointless to those of us who don't worship. I spend my Sabbath day hiking in nature these days...that's the extent of it.

It's my Sabbath again, so I have time to write a reasonable response. It's here:

If you actually spend your Sabbath hiking and don't corrupt it with other unholy activities, then you are in fact keeping the Sabbath.
