Why pro- Catholic Christian faith as opposed to superstition? Because it drives people away from the Faith. Check out this thread.

Quote from Ireland
"I'm sure plenty of other crap survived, but naturally because one piece of junk happens to be religious in nature, it's a SIGN!
A sign that religious people are morons."
I know that comment sounds crude and harsh, but after all the suffering because of pedophile priests and their papal protectors, the ire of Ireland is justified. Can you imagine the victim's mind contemplating Catholics doing nothing to stop pedo priests and yet see them travel around the world to Fatima and Medugorje for an uncertain source of "faith". No wonder Time magazine reported that the biggest loss of faith is the huge number of Irish Americans who are now atheists.
I just read that 1 of 10 Americans are ex-Catholics.

It is better to meet a bear robbed of her whelps, than a fool trusting in his own folly.
