RELIGION: Catholic Church doesn’t need modernizing

A letter writer (TNT, 4-24) said the Catholic Church needs to modernize. Why? There are thousands of Protestant denominations and nondenominational churches. We need a church that has more than 2,000 years of wisdom dating back to the first pope, Jesus’ apostle Peter.

The church is a worldwide bureaucracy, so not every thing runs smoothly. Catholics are human, and many do not live up to the high standards of the faith, but Jesus is a merciful God and he forgives.

That letter just looked like Catholic-bashing. If you don’t like the Catholic Church, join another church.

I’m happy to be Catholic.
