So, the whole Roman Catholic thing. It was great. Really. It injected some much needed Catholic piety into my prayer life and practice of my faith. I devoured and am devouring many books. It made me question many of my beliefs. I still have issues I’m working thru. I needed to immerse myself in the Mother Church to re-align my faith which was not just lukewarm, it could only be called faithlessness. but I can’t. I can’t assent to all of the Roman beliefs. I can’t. As beautiful as the religion is. I have prayed. A lot. And I am an Anglican. On Sunday I will attend my TEC parish. I’m sure you are all assured of my insanity at this point. I’m still growing my sodomy-preventing-beard. I’m not returning to TEC so I get “get away with” sins that Rome is strict with. There is just this underlying hate among RCs lately. They just hate the other. I can’t find love in Roman Catholicism. I’ll take my TEC parish with my female Vicar and gay and married Canon. I always seem to sense Jesus present there. I can never seem to find Jesus among his Roman followers. I don’t think this is a problem with Catholicism. I think this is some sort of American-Catholic aberration.
