In general terms, exCatholics are very bitter. ExProds have very warm feeling towards their former church.
“In general terms, exCatholics are very bitter.”
I agree, and understand why. Regardless of what the “study” says, 100% of the ex-Catholics I know left the Church to get married again after a divorce (in which they or the spouse wouldn’t qualify for marriage within the Church). They are bitter because they know in their heart of hearts that they are “playing church” when they go to a Protestant denomination to “play family”. Also, 80% of them never attend any church again after the faux-wedding.
Count me in on that.

I have not encountered that and I know PLENTY ex-Catholics. Most of them have an attitude like that of bb, as she just commented on another thread.
In all honesty, gc, it sounds like an RC hijacked your screen name.
THANKS FOR THE PING.
Will send you an email if I can find your current one.
I've seen this to be true dozens of time. Ex-Catholics end up mad they were lied to when all they have to do to be saved is believe in Christ as Lord, King,God and Savior.
Who wouldn't be angry they were lied to?
As Jesus insrtucts us -- "Be not afraid; only believe."
I was raised Catholic, went from one Protestant church to the next after I had children. Met many very nice, welcoming folks who love the Lord. I learned a lot, but the upshot is that I went back to Catholicism and brought 10 more with me. :)
I still love my old friends from all denominations!
