43. Me, too. Catholic. It blows my mind how much the teachings of Christ are ignored!

I can't understand it. Just can't! You'd think people calling themselves Christian would be militant about making sure all the needy in our country are taken care of. The whole "am I my brother's keeper?" thing - you'd think they'd all take it to heart. Wasn't that the mission we were all given? To love our neighbors as ourselves? One of the mere two basic commandments given by Jesus? To care for the least of His brethren? Aren't we supposed to be about that, if we call ourselves Christian? I honestly don't know what kind of "Savior" they're following sometimes. It isn't the Jesus I recognize from what the nuns taught us.

Really disappointing. I am so disappointed in my fellow man sometimes. What the HELL are they thinking (besides ME ME ME, and Screw You, all the time, that is)???

Just realized something - the first half of "mean" is ME. Most instructive.
