16. exactly
I'm a Catholic, and I always make sure to clarify and I often refer to myself as a Liberal Catholic. And one of my teachers, who is also a friend of my mother's, claims it is impossible to be a Liberal Catholic. She say it contradicts itself. Yeah right, this coming from someone who is Wells Lutheran, which tends to be super conservative. But to her credit, as a teacher she at least had enough sense not to vote Democrat and she doesn't really care much for b*sh.
But from what I've heard, at this particular church, there can't even be a meeting unless a man is present. I'm not totally sure, but it's a disturbing thought nonetheless.

And not that I have anything against any religion, just the brainwashing they do.
