I can appreciate a strain of conscious and crisis of faith causing someone to demit their faculties.

And As a convert to Rome after several generations of Protestant heritage to meet persons of other traditions who trully live the light of their conscious outside full communion with he Church of Rome is a breath of fresh air from time to time in a wired way.

Becoming a pied piper renegade Shepard of poorly catechimized faithful is a grave situation .

Thank you for using a small c in "church" in the heading
