WHAT TRIBE OF CATHOICISM TO YOU BELONG TO AND DO YOU TALK TO OTHERS OF OTHER TRIBES?
Whether we are Catholic "Lite" or Catholic "Taliban" without terroristic characteristics of course, we are all Catholic, no?
In the past a good Catholic was distinguished from a bad Catholic by how faithful one was to Sunday Mass and Holy Days of Obligation, Confession, support of one's parish and diocese, not eating meat on Friday, supporting Catholic education, etc.
But usually good Catholics and bad Catholics spoke to one another and bad Catholics weren't so haughty as to think they were good Catholics. They admitted their shame and sheepishly moved the conversation on.
John Allen has a good article today on talking to one another, Catholic Lite and Catholic Taliban. Is it possible?
