[quote:x5t2r0ua]It is time the church in the States comes full circle with the rest of the world instead of think it is special and requiring different rules. Maybe this was a little offensive to some, but we have had this mind set way too long my brother and sisters and we need to unify and come complete with out faith. [/quote:x5t2r0ua]
I agree. We are so special that we ruined our church. It is time to clean house, so to speak, and figure out if we are Catholics or are we a church that bows down to every whim that society can throw at it. Instead of trying to down play our Catholicism, we need to celebrate it. Teach our children what true Catholicism really is, not the watered down, peace and love version. Peace and love are great, but God is better.
