    The Catholic Church is very far from its original roots. But, gotta say, some of those churches who strive to get back to those roots the hardest, the single-celled evangelical churches, each with their congregation-appointed pastor and council of elders, in only loose communion with any other parish, haven't exactly brought the kingdom of heaven to earth either.

    Loathsome hierarchy to one side, Catholics have the advantage of being catholic small C -- what happens in those more democratic churches is people vote with their feet and everybody clusters in like-minded clumps. Us Catholics never know who the hell is going to sit next to them in the pew. I like that.
