CATHOLIC BIGOTRY FROM CATHOLICS? YES IT IS CRYSTAL CLEAR THAT THEY MUDDY THE WATERS!
Last night I was at a bar in Augusta, really. Well it was the Village Deli and the bar was a part of the restaurant that had no tables but two chairs at the bar. Well on one side of me was a person who was brought up Catholic and well, he no longer is, he's a "none." No pun intended.
On the other side of me was another fallen away Catholic who seems to have embraced an alternative lifestyle. She's a "none" too!
I don't think either of them hate the Church or want to change her, they just don't want to be a part of her. They are ambivalent and other concerns in their lives, like drinking and their alternative relationships take precedence over God and religion and the discipline to the moral life these ask for; although one of them said they can and do pray to God when they feel like it at any time of day or night. Sweet!
It is sad when Catholics abandon the discipline of our Faith. It is reprehensible when they become vitriolic shrills against our faith.
George Wiegel calls a "spade a spade" in writing about Maureen Dowd, who could loosely be called a journalist for the New York Times. It is excellent. Read all about here: MAUREEN DOWD THE CATHOLIC BIGOT!
