“Its very sad to say but where I live, the non-Catholic churches arent too kind or receptive to us Catholics.”
“I see from your freeper profile that you are in PA. At one time, PA hosted large catholic communities. Has that changed?”
I am also a bit surprised by your comments. I also live in Western Pennsylvania, and it seems to me that, at least where I live, a large majority of people are Catholic.
I grew up in johnstown and now live in Pittsburgh. While it is accurate to say a majority identify as “Catholic”, I have found many are CINOs. In addition, where I am in the city, there is much New Age, humanist bullcrap as well as many mainline Protestant churches openly advocating gay marriage. The non-lib Protestants I’ve met consider me to be”unsaved” and barely a Christian. Add to that the fundie churches around here & you will see that although our bishop is prominent in the local media with some other high-profile Catholics (like the Rooneys), everyday encounters are generally unfriendly.
