I apologize if this is in the wrong subsection, but I didn’t know where to post it.
I belong to a secular forum with mostly non-Catholics and non-Christians. The non-Christians are a mixture - many new age, some agnostic, and many atheists. They forum has several sections not unlike CAF, and one of the sections is political news.
In this political news section, they always include news clips/vids of our Pope. You can imagine the comments that gets. It is not the non-Catholics that are worrisome, but the non-Christians can be pretty bad.
Just as an example, many of them are quite happy with Francis, since they are convinced he is going to changed Church doctrine, especially regarding homosexual marriage. Also, one of the men made a remark about how much the Church has hurt people.
I am at a loss as to where to begin to explain Catholicism to these people, and that if I do not defend our Pope and Faith, I am somehow betraying Our Lord. What should I do?
I wonder what Francis would do?
