I am feeling so bummed out right now. One of my Catholic friends posted the article on the Bishop who thought that Pelosi should be excommunicated. My friend commented that he should probably be excommunicated too (he also supports abortion, contraception, euthanasia and so on). I answered back that yes, he should be excommunicated too if he has no desire for instruction/correction, has not had the sacrament of reconciliation and still presents himself for communion. He said he was following his conscience. I said that you conscience is ill formed and we went back and forth. It degraded to the point where he called me intolerant and then another Catholic friend of his jumped in and basically told me that she was Catholic but she wasn’t a fanatic (meaning that I was) and that all you need is love and that clearly I was not operating out of love.
I am so disturbed that they would call themselves Catholic and then call me FANATIC for upholding Church teaching. I just am so upset about it.
Another gay uncle chewed me out on facebook for what he says my intolerance on gay marriage and “liking” posts that he finds objectionable. He says he is going to unfriend me (he hasn’t done so yet).
It really isn’t about Facebook per se but I am just mad at these so called Catholics and others who are mad at me for following MY faith. I am so angry. :mad:
