Well then, I am sorry.
I’ve just seen too many people on this forum proudly displaying their knowledge of the ins-and-outs of Catholicism, and disdaining others who know less. But then, knowing all the rules may make one “Catholic,” but it’s the way in which we live our lives that defines the extent to which we are “good” Catholics. I wonder how many of these folks express their knowledge in how they live but, If I answered, that, I would be purely speculating.
There’s a little bit of history here too, thistle, for me on this forum. That is why maryjk was able to report the information she did. Perhaps she thought she was “calling me out,” or maybe she was just being informative. I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt. I’ve made my share of mistakes and gotten pretty lost at times - over the past two years even. But I’ll admit to all of them, and I’ll call myself out, so it’s pointless for someone else to.
Again, I apologize for my angry and disgusted response. I’m just so disappointed in this forum (and yet, I continue to use it) because I believed that as Catholics, we are supposed to be brothers and sisters in Christ to one another, not throw the book at each other. One of the reasons I cam back to the Church is because I finally saw Catholicism could be accessible to me and meaningful in my life. Some people here seem to detest that.
