OK, so I am like the only practicing Catholic in my extended family of origin, and I am a little annoyed that the Church thinks it falls to *me *to suddenly take a strong stand against some scandalous act?!?!?!
So I have gone to the weddings… many of my parents’ generation left in between the borth control issue and V2 and all that.
The next generation were all baptized but generally either not raised Catholic or much was left up to the Catholic schools, which did not do a good job.
So now the hierarchy, *which tolerates so much bad activity on the part of so many, *expects *me *to take a hard line? Risking my relationships with my family?
I am ver annoyed about this!
