The same could be said about America right now and many of its institutions e.g. the military.
Do you blame the military -do you blame the many authentic for the few illegitimate? Institutions are perverted by people.
You have to look beyond the perversion and beyond the perverts to see what is good and what is that which they can not pervert -what is that to place your faith in and what is that which will restore the institution.
When I look at the Church I see the deposit of Faith -His teachings, His word -that is the Church.
When I look at America I see the self evident -the declaration of Faith and the observance of His Word as supreme and unalienable -premise for authentic and legitimate freedom and self determination all codified in the Constitution.
In my opinion, confusing the good with the bad -throwing out the baby with the bath water assists evil more than it opposes it...
Look, I'm just going to respond once to this and let the chips fall where they may.
As much as I love what the Military tradition in this country - I don't put them at the same level of the RCC (very specific I'm being). I was raised Catholic and I thought the WORLD of the institution. It shaped my life since I was a baby practically and so those are my feelings.
But anyone can think whatever they want on the subject since we are in a free country (still/s)
