    So I don't pretend to be a Catholic, but I can say say that my mom, uncle, and aunt were all raised Catholic, and none of them have much good to say about the Church.

    My point was only that there are plenty of practicing Catholics who have no problem questioning the Church and calling bullshit when they see it.

      . . .there are plenty of practicing Catholics who have no problem questioning the Church and calling bullshit when they see it.
      Contrary to the opinion of many both inside and outside the Church, it is not, and has never been, quite as monolithic and authoritarian as the movie version.  It is a pretty big tent.
