20. I am not Roman Catholic might as well be.
My Grandfathers best friend fishing buddy was a small town Priest also a good liberal Democrat. I was raised by my Grandfather.

My friend was really into St. Theresa of Avilla. When I knew him best I introduced him to a local Carmelite monestery that a neighbor introduced to me. Not radical there and actually inspiring. As to how this calamity has hit my friend I suspect a Parish Priest. Actually I suspect he is deep down pissed off with life and has given in to the conservative influence mainly at church. Guess I am not such a good friend he can piss off himself.
