Thank you for your interesting post, especially the last paragraph. Your sentiments are by no means unusual, as I am sure you know. They are an excellent example of anti-Catholic bigotry.

For the record, I am not an anti-Catholic bigot. Every Christian family has its skeletons in the closet, its lunatic aunt raving and mumbling in the basement. I know wonderful Catholic Christians who cultivate a little Marian devotion on the side. And I know Protestant Christians who actually support the cult of Caesar by rendering unto Caesar that which is God's -- the hearts, minds, and souls of their children. On some of the major issues of the day (the religious nature of all education, the religious nature of abortion on demand) the Catholics got things right long before the Protestants did.

I am sure there are inconsistencies in my life, invisible to me, and pray that my dear brothers and sisters will be gracious regarding these.

Still, as much as I respect the Catholic side of God's family, for me, the cult of the BVM is the deal-breaker.
