154. You could be . . .

except Scalia and Thomas are rather poor examples of that --
and organized patriarchal religions all over the world are poor examples of
your suggested non-eforcement.

Prop 8 is also a poor example of the religious minded minding their own busiess ...
rather organized patrarichal religions have long reached out to impose their ideas
on democratic goverments and societies.

Indeed, the war on "Choice" is obviously to control Catholic women and their families
-- who have abortions at the same rate as any other women -- as much as others.
The Church is reaching out beyond the church to control all of society --
always has been.

The Vatican/RCC long supported "death to infidels" which included the native Americans
and Africans enslaved here. These issues have always applied more to pocket-book issues
than any "morality."

Further, the Crusades were a "MORAL STEP BACKWARDS FOR HUMANITY" ...
and also introduced new precedents in violence/torture/cruelty!

Prayer is an attempt to influence the fates --

As the native Americans says . . . "the only real prayer is for wisdom" --

Liberal Catholics don't JUDGE others based on their religion but only try to set an example personally, without fanfare.

As long as "liberal" Catholics continue to support this anti-female, anti-homosexual church
they are not setting any example except one of intolerance.

I hope this helps because it's hard to explain how one can stay Catholic yet endure the patriarchal system that is SO WRONG for many?

It's hard to explain, because it makes no sense --

but then, who ever said that religion was good for mental health?
