Glenn-

I thought that you were balancing your wife's liberalism against her being a Catholic because of your sentence structure:

"...but my wife considers her self essentially a "liberal," also, not exactly political, but she is also catholic."

Now that's actually pretty confusing. The "but" at the beginning of the last clause seems to refer back to the first. I.e. - eliminating the superfluous "also, not exactly political" we're left with:

"but my wife considers her self essentially a "liberal," but she is also catholic."

That's why I apparently misunderstood what you meant.

Gottcha, I guess I can understand that
It's amazing, people will criticize you for "biting the hand that feeds you," while they're busy praising the hand that beats them.

I won't forget you Robert.

Forgive me going off topic but a Catholic priest here who the heirachy threw out of his church, St Mary's, for being too liberal, now leads a congregation known as St Mary's in Exile. I saw in an interview last week he now believes God doesn't exist, is not sure Jesus ever lived, and doubts the power of prayer. While I don't disagree with him on any of that, I wonder that he still calls himself Catholic. I would have thought a belief in God was necessary.


Didn't Penn & Teller have an interview with one of those guys on their BS show? Or maybe I'm thinking of 'Religulous...'

As a political atheist I am diametrically opposed to people with any political beliefs.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

I've never had a problem with anyone because of what they believe, ever, as long as they don't have a problem with me being different.

Sometimes I have a problem with Tommy, however. Smile

I am politically liberal and non religious, yet for 6 months have been travelling and working with someone active in conservative politics and a practicing Catholic. We spend 14 - 16 hours a day, 5 or 6 days a week together and get on very well. We only occasionally decide to abandon a conversation before it becomes too heated.

It's much more interesting than being around people who agree with you all the time and I have rediscovered that there is not always only one truth.


Have you read Graham Greene's Monseigneur Quixote? Sounds like you are living it.

I haven't read any Graham Greene since I was about 15 - thanks for that - time for a revisit. I have during the last 6 months sometimes been reminded of an Ann Rice book where the Devil and God are sitting in a Paris Café discussing how things came about and how it's all turned out.
