17. I agree with h20 man...evaluate your relationships...weigh
whether the neice will be hurt if you don't. Are you close to the neice? or is it a flagrant ploy by the sister?

the neice probably doesn't know or care about the validity/non validity of the catholic church in your POV at this time, but she WILL know/care she asked uncle DanCa to come and he refused.

I would say that its a children's mass, its family, so no one would or should consider that being hypocritical to your principles if you attend. If it makes you feel any better, (and this is how to come off like a knight in shining armor), tell them that even though going to the catholic church USUALLY would be against your principles, for your neice, you'd go anywhere.

This would do both things: 1. earn points with your neice and your family, and 2. make your political point without rancor.

them's my two cents anyhow.
