I'm the godfather to my niece. I think it's an honor, but I have to say that I left my Catholicism behind with my childhood and don't exactly enjoy the church stuff that was obligatory for my role. It's kind of a strange/ironic role to be in... but when I said yes 8 years ago my feelings about religion were quite a bit different. Sitting through her first communion in church a couple weeks ago was unpleasant. But what am I supposed to do? It's a weird situation to be in, honestly. I'm torn between being happy I'm close enough to her to have the role, and yet I'm not religious and in fact have many problems with the Catholic church.
Hmm... didn't mean to hijack the thread, but since Tankah said he's the god father to cute lil Chelsea, it reminded me of this dilemma.
