    I shudder to think what his move from fundamentalism towards tolerance would have bought him today. "Exile" from his own faith and even the church he was raised in, probably.

    I ended up migrating from Protestant to Catholic and now find myself inside another battleground.

    The laity in my parish are wonderful folks, and I hold on to that fiercely.  My priest is a real shepherd.  I'm fortunate.
    But I also know that either things could change, or I could be deceived.

    If I experience anything like what you did...I'm out. With great sorrow, but I would go.  

    Dear budget cutting GOP'ers: Public transit is my “car.” And frankly, I’d like it back.

      My Daddy never preached politics.   He spoke of love and worship.  This is pretty alien in the last several years to me.

      There are a lot of fundamentalist Catholics, those are the ones that I usually avoid talking religion with, their viewpoints are much too narrow!

      When you find a parish that reflects what you seek, that's a parish to stick with. I am so glad that here in the Diocese of San Jose, we don't have to go to the parish that we would have been assigned to -- I like the one I am part of.
