Okay…I got a lot to address here. Great responses and questions by the way.
1.) I agree with the statement regarding a Protestant closer than a Catholic to the RCC’s teachings leading a study. I personally wouldn’t mind the opposite taking place in a Protestant church if the situation were the same. Catholic or Protestant, I wouldn’t have a problem with whoever does it as long as they are true to Christ’s teachings.
2.) I do know of a situation where this very thing is happening. The priest and youth leaders are okay with it, and the students are excited about the person who is doing it. In fact the priest told the dude leading it that they were more Catholic than many Catholics.
3.) They have given, at least as far as I know, an outline to use, but they have given the person doing it the freedom to teach it at their discretion (i.e, different methods for different lessons). I also know that the teen Cathecism is one source they will be using.
Thus far no controversies have erupted, so that is good. From what I have heard the priest and youth leaders have really big plans for this, but they made it clear that no matter what church the kids who come to it come from, there will be NO Catholic bashing.
