Please don’t anyone take this wrong because I really don’t mean it in a bad way at all.
I have been struggling for quite some time now with an issue about the Catholic Church.
From my perspective there are several areas of Catholic teachings that are very difficult to accept. Those issues for the most part involve reason versus faith, or maybe what would be better described as reason versus submission.
The question that has been bothering me is how can people of above average intelligence with lots of formal education continue to accept the teachings of the Catholic Church?
One of my all time heroes was W. F. Buckley. He was hugely intelligent and very well educated but he remained Catholic his whole life.
How do people like Buckley remain Catholic and still maintain their enormous intellectual curiosity?
My guess is that I am not sufficiently bright to pose the question appropriately. However, there remains the concept. How does one stay Catholic with superior intellectual abilities?
