Why am I still Roman Catholic? SIMPLE: It is like a marriage. I am wedded to the RC Church. For better or for worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health. If the RC Church as faults ( and what person or institution does not ) then I choose to stand by Her in Her travail. No theological arguments necessary. Even if She were guilty of all She has been accused I would stand by Her. Would you do any less for your spouse? Don’t over complicate my statement with rhetorical comments. It will fall on deaf ears. My statement is a simple expression of LOVE.
