....Your church has been riddled by sinful, criminal scandals. Followers have been betrayed by the very organization that teaches righteous morality, and you have the nerve to blame catholics for their! behavior.<quoted text>
Yeah, there's lots of reasons like abortion, contraception, gay marriage, wymyn priests, divorce and remarriage, confession, fasting, going to Church on Sunday instead of sleeping in because you're hung over. All ideologies of secularized society where these are considered morally acceptable and which the Church has taught against for 2000 years.
Again Mike, I don't worry one iota about what non-practicing Catholics do. Why do you?
...New York times, CARA, and Pew research center claim over 71% of roman catholics have no issue with birth control, majority of catholics now favor women priests and optional celebacy. With these high percentages that clearly shows that many catholics sitting around you in church every Sunday might not agree with you and your church teachings.
...Your church structure is lax and in a mess. Everything starts at the top.
