42. The bishops and many of today's priests are only further alienating people.

They keep beating the same drum even concerning contraception. It appear that it is a race to gladly drive anyone who disagrees with them driven from the church of true believers. They are oblivious of their Master's basic teachings in which He criticized the religious leaders as placing heavy demands on the people's backs and failing to provide any support to help to left the burden. Pope John XXIII attempted in vain to awaken the church to fact that it was quickly becoming totally irrelevant to the life style and needs of especially the younger people of today's society. His warning were reject by the entrenched hierarchy who only viewed it as an onslaught on what the viewed as their right to dominate what was morally acceptable. The result was easily predictable. It was a total disaster.
