Just so you know my family has a Catholic background, they left the church decades ago because of exactly what you posted.
The stories they tell are sad, disgusting and outrageous.

Jesus also said we would recognize his true follower by their actions and deeds.
Anybody abusing kids disqualify themselves from God's favor.

I see your family doing that as having gained honor.

I have nothing but respect for their choice.

I have no problem, specifically with people deciding to stay, but sometimes people have to take a stand, because it makes a strong point.

Study a little anthropology and you'll find that there are NO universal taboos...that what's abhorred in one society may well be normal in others.

We are looking at this scenario through our own cultural lens and left shocked while Afghanis shrug. There's just no clear answer, and we sure as heck aren't going to change it on them in a hurry. Further, considering other accepted customs like rampant government corruption and the treatment of women, one really has to consider what we're doing there trying to 'Westernize' them. They don't see these things as evil...simply the way it is.

Best thing we can do is blast them with our Western culture, not guns, control our funding, and let the wheel turn a little slower.

All very queer, and no pun intended.
