I am also a catholic and not ashamed to say it either. I agree wholeheartedly with what you say.
The Church is not just those distant old men clad in red sitting in the Sistine Chapel. The Church is every single person who believes in Jesus. This
is what catholic means -"universal". We all are Christ's mystic body.
Sadly enough, that body is very ill. Ill with the misdeeds and filth of those up front in the altar, drunk of themselves, destroying the lives of
those they were sworn to protect and teach. Ill with the power and wealth they have amassed throughout the centuries. Covering themselves in the gold
delivered by the tithing poor.
It's really painful to see every single day, in sites like ATS, in the comments sections to most news outlets, almost everywhere, so much scorn, hate
and spite for the Church. But being absolutely honest and sincere about it, this scorn has been well earned by those in power, and a massive cleaning
is in order. The gangrene is there and is puting the whole body in risk of death.
Probably all this hate and persecution is what is needed to clean the house and make it holy again.
I long for the days when being a Catholic Christian is again a revolutionary act.
People, seriously, not all of us catholics are pedophiles or lust for power or money. I can assure you that 99% of us are good, God-fearing people,
trying our best to love our neighbour and make sense of it all. Don't cast the sins of some in the heads of us all.
