Because many of us are from the generation and read “I love you…but” He didn’t say “I love you for” And he went on to say that he wished that they’d show young Catholics as not weird and geeky.
I think many of us are. I, for one, don’t care. My husband is, my husband’s friends who are Catholic are. My Catholic mommy friends are. We are weird and we are “geeky”…so what then. What if every Catholic I know under 35 is exactly that way?
So I get two messages…either “please change” or “please stop representing the Church” neither of which are pleasant, wouldn’t you agree?
