  •  But Why Should They Care...? (0+ / 0-)

    I've had the lesson drilled into me tonight that no group, no matter how downtrodden, is unwilling to tread on another group (no matter how you'd think they'd know better).

    OK, it was a smoker's rights thread on another site, but still...give the poor creatures some love.  They're addicts, not criminals.  Some of them even bathe occasionally, not that you'd know it from the commentary.

    Still.  It's an interesting insight into the church.  Having a great deal of power...why should they care about a minority group if they can use the division to strengthen their hold on people?

    Sure, it's not working with the younger folks...but right now it keeps the coffers full enough, and enables expansion into places that agree with them.

    As such, I don't expect anything short of a schism would work, with an American Catholic church arising that feels differently and calving off some Catholics from the fold.

    I have no solution on how to fix this.  Except to note that I'm really, really hating human beings right now.
