I don't think so. It seems that way at times, the way Christians are sometimes represented as a voting block.

I live in a fairly liberal area, so many churches 'compete'. Less cynically stated, they meet their parishioners where they are.

Have you done any reading in Catholic mysticism? There is some beautiful writing. And some very tormented, dogmatism, too. Catholics can be as rigid as anyone. I was
raised Catholic and I had to shed all sorts of ideas foisted upon me as a child. However,a seed of that spirituality remains. Mystery and good works. I carry those two things
forward. They can be found, I believe in almost any religion, or in the case of Christianity, in any denomination. I would take it church by church. Watch the people, see how they really treat each other

I feel that religion is reinvented within each person in order to be truly alive. Community. Now that's where it can get sticky. But it's so necessary.

Are you finding anyone like-minded near you?
