They always try to dismiss their sinful years as young and liberal but now you are wiser and conservative all of sudden you are cramming that bible.
Cut to the chase.
You become older and are less marketable to the sex you are attracted to and also have a lessen sex drive thus you aren't out chasing tail. This has nothing to do with becoming wiser and conservative.
One also knows there are less sand in their hourglass of life so no time like now to start cramming religion.
The sins you committed when young are your sins. You can't blame your sins on political lean , alcohol, or drugs. It is called self responsibility.
The Catholic church, with its demonic practice of excommunication, isn't an organization I would hold in high esteem when discussing what is righteous. So your silliness is not the slightest concern of mine.
