Alex's Answer

Did I offend you

Your Question

Hey alex. So I was wondering, am I offensive to you? I ask because most of Ireland is Catholic. I just figured it out since the other day was saint Patrick’s day. I learned what it was about and i thought “hm.. Am I Offensive to irish Catholics? ” so yeah. I’m so sorry if i am by the way. I know Christians and Catholics are similar but Catholics believe in saints and we (Christians) do not. I’m sorry if I offend you. I believe different things than you and we have different opinions. I’m fine with it since everyone is different but yeah. Just asking.
