From a friend on the LCWR (a subsidiary of the Magisterium of Nuns):
It occurs to me that some people are just not understanding in general what a deviation this group is.
Would it be easier to understand if there was a big group of vegans and suddenly a subset became meat eaters, but still wanted to be considered vegans to get a group discount on the salad bar at a market? Or a group of meat eaters who suddenly had a subset of people who decided that cannibalism was the way to go, but still wanted to be considered part of the mainstream because, gosh, how bad is cannibalism anyway… everybody dies – why waste a source of protein?!
I do not know how to frame this, but this isn’t a tussle around a campfire about how gets to sit next to whom.
It’s about people who want to throw other people into the campfire itself and call it therapeutic.
The deviation from the normal standards are causing scandal to the rest of the people who are faithful and probably end up giving up more in their daily lives for their faith then these people who only pretend.
What about this?
