    My liberalism was formed by my Catholic upbringing. The nuns and priests of my childhood, along with the Jesuits and Sisters I had in college, are responsible for having kept me from succumbing to a greed mentality by which I could have been pretty tempted.

    I'm not running around in sackcloth and ashes and I enjoy my career success but this background also kept me grounded and formed my social conscience.

    I may no longer attend Mass , have many disagreements with Church hierarchy and politics, and have no patience for blind faith Catholics who believe the Church has never done wrong or can't. But I wouldn't be the liberal I am without my upbringing a huge part of which was the Catholic church.

    We view "The Handmaid's Tale" as cautionary. The GOP views it as an instruction book.
