I have noticed younger generations seem to have been able to let go of organized religion and accept the fact that what the churches preaches/teaches does not make sense. This is a good thing as it shows more independent thinkers BUT if you are going to follow a religion you should do so completely as they ask otherwise dont waste your time.
Then it makes no sense for dieters to diet in most cases or for people to trying to lead a healthier lifstyle. That's the point that humans are not perfect and faulter.That is the reason you should not judge lso as the bible says. Your points are just the same rants against organized religion that can be applied to politics and even social programs or most thing involving human. There is fraud in welfare their for get ride of oit for example;people riot so take their civil rights away tec.

Perhaps rather than follow out of touch church leaders, Catholics are choosing to follow God. What better leader than that? Try thinking before shooting off your mouth about others.
