You are so right. Priests mostly see the bad stuff. I knew a counselor who was a presenter for part of an Appelachian Cultural Studies Class I took one summer to meet a sociology requirement.
He said that through his practice in a small rural town in Appelachian he had come to the conclusion that Appelachian Culture was a “culture of violence and incest.” I quickly spoke up and asked him how many healthy families visit his clinic and how they compare to the other families he is friends with there.
He seemed caught off guard and admitted he had made no friends in the 12 years he had been in practice. So all he had to go on was his clinical experience. He blamed that on the “xenophobia of southerners” who saw him only as an outsider.
I suggested that maybe they were picking up on his pre-judgement of them. He clearly did not like my comment and did not respond.
As the lecture continued, he applied the phrase “culture of incest and violence” again but to all southerners this time. I again spoke up and asked him where he was originally from. He said " Chicago, that’s why I have no accent." The classroom, full of southerners, laughed.
I couldn’t help myself, but I responded, “Well, there’s certainly no violence or incest in Chicago, is there?” He said, well, I guess you’ve got me there. I’m fairly sure that the professor of the class who had invited this presenter wanted to strangle me at this point.
