Subject: RE: BS: Catholic religion response to 'today'
You can have different eras Joe. You can have different geography too.

The Catholic culture a couple of hundred miles North of me in Scotland or to the west in Ireland is a much greater distance than between your childhood and your present.

Yet Scotland and Ireland are far more sectarian than where I came from and Catholics were and still are never branded as such. Branded as supporters of a football team or whether they drink in pubs or working mens clubs, ,branded by occupation or hair colour but never really by religion.

Perhaps that is why I remain bemused by religious leaders pontificating and adherents apologising for them.
