Jill and I feel the same way about the way the Church continually interferes with politics. The issue seems similar to bad parent who as the government to monitor their kids’ TV watching for them. It seems like every time I try and rekindle my trust in Catholicism, they pull stunts like the aforelinked one. I feel like Ronald Regan: I didn’t leave the Catholic Church, the Catholic Church left me.
