The way you just responded to that is exactly what I am talking about when I say not being able to relate to these kinds of Catholics. Most of my friends are atheists, or agnostics. They question me on my faith all the time and respect how I give good answers and don't get upset when they question me.I understand what they are feeling, and I feel like God is asking me to help them. I would never call one of them a baby, and I always remember when answering them that I am representing the faith and need to be calm and setting my best example. I have never met you, but I have a feeling if I did you would be one of these Catholics that as I said, I respect, but can not relate to. It makes the room stuffy and stops people from talking about the challenges we experience with temptation, etc
Ok. Note that you in your very first post - without actually having had any interaction with any of us on here - straight away went on the extreme offensive by labelling all cradle Catholics as inauthentic, ie phoneys. Saying you can't relate is one thing, namecalling a whole grouo of people you haven't even talked with yet is another entirely.
Can't help but also notice that instead of responding to the substance of my post - for example do you have anything to say in response to my counter example of Mother Teresa? - you instead take issue with the style of my communication. That also will shut dialogue down very quickly.
I used the word child - you are a child in the faith. Nothing wrong with that at all, we've all been exactly where you are faithwise. And like all children you exhibit the tendency to think that adults don't understand when truth is they do, all too well.
