RELIGION: Church needs to enter the real world

A teacher is fired for wanting to be a mother because the only way she could get pregnant is through in vitro fertilization. The nuns have to “be brought into line” because they are helping poor, young, unwed pregnant girls (TNT, 4-27). Gays and lesbians are ostracized and discriminated against because of who they are.

The priests think they are above the law and can cover up their atrocities. I was baptized a Catholic as a baby, and so were my children. How sad.

Is it right for a religion to brainwash a person from an early age to think you will end up in eternal damnation because you can’t stomach the terrible prejudices of the Catholic Church? I hope someday the church can “be brought into line” with the real world and with an understanding God.
