Apostasy. A majority of Catholics are apostaste. When will our priests start preaching the truth and perhaps start teaching that being Catholic means obedience, not rebellion?

It’s well known that the second most numerous religious denomination in the US, after Catholics, is “former” Catholics. Many of these continue to self-identify as Catholic even though they no longer practice the faith. These survey figures cannot be properly considered unless a distinction is made between “practicing” and “casual” or weekly Mass attendees and occasional Mass attendees. It’s misleading, to say the least, to represent that a majority of “Catholics” disagree with/ignore Church teaching on social and sexual issues.

In our parish the only sin is being judgmental. That apparently is the sin God cannot forgive. As for sexual sins, forget them. If the gospel refers to them you can bet the homily will be focused on the other readings. And vice-versa. After mass at my parish I go home and listen to the preaching on EWTN.
