Why have so many chatholics left the church and what can be done to bring them back?
Where are they going?
I think that Church is a great place to begin our quest for finding truth. But I also think that our journey is meant to continue on past that. There are some things that are not going to be found in Church.
Usually, once people start to think for themselves, they don't come back to a state of ignorance and delusion. Kids have access to the internet and information, hence are breaking their indoctrinations at an earlier age in life.
LOL. i read somewhere that atheism is a perfectly understandable thing, to an adolescent boy; but evidence of a stunted intellect in adults. Not saying it's true, just something I read
I'm so glad to hear you've learned to read. There is then to achieve gaining the skill sets of synthesis and critical thinking in order to rise to the status of an intellectually stunted adult, moving well beyond that of an adolescent boy.
However, it would behest me to ask that if one was not yet able to comprehend a concept like atheism, would that mean they have yet to even attain adolescence?
LOL. Good come back. I disagree, but that's to be expected.
Is it expected? How unfortunate.
It's funny how I agreed with you and now you are disagreeing with my agreement with you. Is that to be expected as well?
Were you agreeing? Oh, sorry. I thought you were insinuating I was pre adolescent. My bad.
The only way to get them back to catholic church is first start tell the truth.
Then get rid of the of all the dodgy priest than hide under the church's vestments - this has done more to empty the churches than the internet and Sunday shopping. Strict vetting should be introduced for all potential priests...
Libra, I felt compelled to apologize for posting in your forum. I'm not Catholic, know nothing about the subject and knew I had no opinion to offer on the topic. I was just surprised when I saw Beezeldad had posted, since I was pretty sure he would be clueless too. thats what brought me in. So sorry to take up space. I hope you find the answers you seek.

I had posted a thread "define atheism". I want to move forward. Since atheism has been defined as "lack of belief in God" what are your reasons for taking that position? In other words what are the reasons for lack of belief in God? Many has said it is "lack of...

On various occasions I have been attacked because of my condemnation of the Vatican even by non believers! It is more severe than any other topic I bring up. Why is it so hard to accept that evil has infiltrated what is supposed to be a representative of God? I don't want this to be a...
