She doesn't care one bit about her 'faith', or God's teachings.

I'll never forget the time I spoke to a young woman who I thought was a devout Catholic and who wanted to know why I didn't support John Kerry. When I told her I couldn't vote for a pro-choice Catholic she seemed truly confused and asked why. When I told her you couldn't be a Catholic in good standing and choose a pro-choice candidate over a pro-life candidate she told me she was pro-choice and a Catholic in good standing. I ended the conversation very quickly. She was a student and a minor and I figured I could take it no further. It is very dis-heartening to find Catholics who believe they are in communion with the Church when they are not. I blame their formation, where was her pastor on this one?

Most Catholic education has been woefully inadequate the last 30 years. That includes Catholic high schools as well as high school CCD programs in most Parishes. They tend to concentrate on ‘Social Justice’ issues, and don’t spend a lot of time on sexual morality issues. I don’t know if it’s because the writers of the curricula don’t believe in the Church’s teachings, or they just think the kids won’t listen anyway, because the teachings are SO counter-cultural.
