  •  Shook the dust from my sandals YEARS ago. (0+ / 0-)

    I always joked that I was too logical to make a good Catholic ("...but if birth control keeps women from having abortions, why is it bad?").

    I didn't so much run as saunter away about 30 years ago - after spending my youth as a choirmember, a lector, and once even a pinch-hitting Eucharistic minister. But, like watching the Reagan 80s swallow progress and regress back to White Men Get Everything, I saw the Church edge back into Woman Shut Up and Get Off the Altar territory - and the hateful Jesusjugend at my campus just made it easier to walk away from any expression of Christianity altogether.

    The Church has regressed badly. Frankly, I'm surprised they're not doing the Latin liturgy with the priest's back to the congregation - you know, from the good old days when a woman who asked too many questions needed a good burning.
