I Can Feel My Blood Boil!

I know we are told not to judge. Let me say that this is definitely something I struggle with and it is part of my daily prayers to correct this flaw in myself. However, this morning I can't help myself. To my defense if you're going to put yourself out in the public eye and take a political view on something you need to be subject to a little judgement and criticism. So allow me this indulgence because I just have to voice my opinion and frustration on a particular Catholic woman.

I'm so sorry! Just the sight of her sets me off! She claims to be a faithful Catholic, but her words, actions, and votes just don't portray it and I'm so frustrated! Am I alone out there on this view? Please come to my rescue and tell me how you feel. Tell me if I'm wrong, I can take it.


  1. No, you are not alone in your frustration. Many people CALL themselves Catholic but do not follow Catholic teaching. What I can't understand is: Why do they bother if they don't believe that what the Church teaches is truth? Why be a Catholic?

  2. Oh boy, you are so not alone! Even Obama claims to be a Christian, yet his life speaks otherwise. It doesn't matter which side of the political spectrum you're on. There are "lip-synchers" on all sides.

    I really do not think that people truly understand what it means to be when they say they follow Christ. A gut check is in order for most people.

  3. I think hearing people proclaim that they are catholic and then doing things that we would never consider doing because we are Catholics makes all of us angry. I am not American but I recognise Nancy's face more than some other Australian politicians because she is so obviously Catholic in name only. So no you most definitely are not alone.
