3. When I was surviving Catholic school
...the one useful thing I was taught was to listed to that "still, small voice within," because that was the voice god used to communicate with us. Catholics by and large are out there listening to that voice, and it's telling them that butchering women by making abortions illegal is not the right thing to do.

The main cardinal who is raising the rumpus over Kerry is a Nigerian who is bucking to be the first black pope by being as far to the right as he possibly can be.

I guess he never heard of rendering unto Caesar that which is Caesar's. Christ knew that combining religion and government was a rotten idea, since it inevitably diminished both. It's a pity Rome hasn't caught a clue.

I find I love Catholics. I just hate the church hierarchy.
