Let me say from experience in arguing this issue elsewhere, people will ignore facts that don’t fit their anti-Catholic views.
At first that headline was very off-putting but after thinking it over I guess one could call me an atheist christian; I was baptized in the Methodist church at an early age by my grandmother’s insistence and have been around mostly christian people my entire life.
After much thought I have concluded that strictly heirarchical churches are too stifling to the human character and dictatorial churches even worse.
The best choice is no church at all and a deep respect for those who live their lives with a strong conviction that causing harm is against the success of society and the race of man.
However, I have never been entranced by Mother Earth’s call to worship the ground upon which I trod and will fatefully crawl again - only to be covered by it in the end.
The final reward may simply be silence.
Bingo! This is nothing more than an excuse to vent their frustration. Thanks for the ping and post.
