Heya Well...Not quite sure how to start this off! I'm Fennec, and I'm a twenty one year old student from the U.K. I'm currently on the last year of a B.A in Classics and Religious Studies, much of the latter being directed towards the history, apologetic and doctrine of the Catholic Church and ironically enough that is what led me here really. It feels awkward to explain even anonymously online, but in the past couple of years I have had to seriously consider and contemplate what exactly it is I believe in. While the actions of individuals are a poor standard to judge an entire organization by (and hence I try and not bring it's rather less glamorous moments of history into consideration), there are several aspects of faith that the Catholic Church teaches as absolute, unchanging Dogma that I increasingly find difficult to rationalize as logical, non-hypocritical or in some cases even moral. It's not for want of trying in attempting to "correct" my view; I probably own more apologetic books off the Ignatius Press than most Seminarians but even still, I find myself at something of a loss. I've begun to read more into other denominations; Orthodoxy, Methodism, Quakerism to name a couple I've skimmed the surface on so far, Anglicanism included but there's so many questions that pop up in my mind, and there's only so many a book can answer for me. I'm hoping that by joining here, I might get to learn more about how non-Catholics see and practice Christianity, or reconcile new features like women ordination with it. Well, that's all I have to say for now. Hoping to get to know some of you a bit better!
