    Love the belief system and the ritual, hate the pompous and criminal hacks who run the day to day machinery. It works for Catholics and their church hierarchy, it works for Americans who love the Constitution and detest the bought and paid-for crooks on Capitol Hill.

      They're silly superstitions.  But I do like Gothic architecture, so kudos to Catholicism for that.

        One can justifiably excoriate Catholicism, Mormonism, Islam, Judaism...

        But I have a problem when it's personalised (beyond the leadership I mean). You don't do this, but Richard Dawkins (who I otherwise admire) slips over from sweeping statements about Catholics, Mormons, Muslims... you can see where this can lead.

        Maybe Abrahamic religions aren't all useless after all: lambast the sin but not the sinner
