Not much for me, though I do run into lots of anti-NRCs
It’s easy to see in chat rooms and on message boards such as CARM.
Yes. I run into most anti-NRCs on CARM or other boards.
I’m not talking about internet fundamentalists here, I mean people you know or meet in the real world.
I think most folks keep most of their opinions to themselves in person. There is a time and place for everything, and that time is rarely in normal day-to-day personal relations.
Since these board are specifically designed to air out and discuss the differences, we would probably all tend to see the vast majority of dissent from all sides online.
I run into lots of people who are completely ignorant of what the Church teaches and why
Me too…and many of them are Catholic if I am to be honest.
Any educated Catholic is already aware of this, so this is no news.
but only once or twice have I gotten the “silent treatment” after I told someone I was Catholic.
It depends on your community.
Tell your Catholic family that you left the RCC.
Now there’s some serious “silent treatment”…
So what about it? Do you encounter real anti-Catholicism in your day to day life?
I come more into contact with anti-NRCs myself.
If so, what do you do about it?
I tend to ignore it, but I should be doing more of this:
Rom 12:14 “Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse”
I guess who is an “anti” anything depends on what side of the tracks one’s turf is.
