Yeah, that legalism is a pain. My personal theory is that people have a legalistic view of the Church because of the way the Church has acted in the past and the way it enforced the rules. Nuns with rulers, bishops and priests with political power, etc… I think has led to this view.
I think the Church of today though is working hard to shed that image and hopefully the next generation will not view it so legalistically. ” title=”Smile” />
