WHAT'S RIGHT WITH THE CATHOLIC CHURCH #44

In this section, wherein I as a practicing Roman Catholic member of the Laity (the Body of the Church) offer my opinions regarding some positions of the Church, regular reading of articles provided daily in "Zenit: The Church Seen From Rome" (www.zenit.org) is very helpful.  Also helpful are articles posted on LifeNews.com.  I provide  Links to those valuable sites from this web-site. 
In recent weeks, several topics have been addressed which should be reviewed in the original by any interested reader.  Refreshingly, they clarify rather than obfuscate.
  • "Economic Considerations in the Removal of Life Support", (ZE10111710, 11/17/2010).
  • Several articles on the recent election of Archbishop Timothy Dolan as President of the U.S. Conference of Bishops: LifeNews, Nov. 12, 15, 16, 2010.  That choice was very reassuring to me.  
  • "Pope: Bishops'  Conference Doesn't Replace Bishop", (ZE10111511, 11/15/2010).
  • "Thirty Studies in Five Years Show Abortion Hurts Women's Mental Health": LifeNews.com, Nov. 12, 2010. 
  • Several articles on Christians in the Holy Land: Zenit, Oct. 24, 25, 26, 29, 2010.  
  • "Religion In America: New Book Examines the Diversity of Faith" Zenit, Oct. 31, 2010.  
Some statistics from the last reference listed:
"No less than 83% of the population belongs to some religion, with 40% reporting that they attend religious services nearly every week"..."Among white Catholics, just over 60% have left the Church, with an almost equal division between those who have lapsed and rarely take part in any church activity, and those who have switched religion". 

I am not one of that 60%.  "I would rather fight than switch".   GS
