I'm walking around with a sense of guilt because I'm not agnostic; I'm a proud Roman Catholic but again I find myself in disagreement with the church's hierarchy. I didn't go to church yesterday because I suspected that they would try to get me to oppose something I don't agree with. I found myself watching a lot of television this week end, hoping to find some words that would give me comfort or prove me wrong. I heard a lot of church representatives try and prove their case but their analogies were not realistic. I know I've been told more than once; you don't like the church teachings get out. It's not that simple because it's like a marriage to me, I have a lot invested in it. Right now feel like I betrayed my faith by being so adamant and going the extra mile to prove them wrong.
I strongly oppose any church's involvement in politics, not because I think they should be blind followers but because they should be a model of peaceful resolutions, not back room negotiations. The church's involvement in politics started a long time ago during the crusades. In United States, Father Coughlin.,took to the airwaves to speak about danger of Social Security and socialism, way back in 1926. He was the Rush Limbaugh of that time. This time it's different, it's about the church's fundamental values, whether I agree with it or not. The church's hierarchy are conservatives and they will not evolve anytime soon. Don't get me wrong, they still support the poor and are proponents of climate change concerns and I'm in agreement more than I disagree with the teachings.
When the church gets involved in politics both sides will use them. The evangelicals do not like the catholic church per say but they will side with them on the social issues.The politicians will take the same path.
I don't get offended when someone talks bad about the president,Democrats, or in this issue the opposing party in an issue such as this. Everyone is entitled to their opinion.
I'm so frustrated with the work on Sam Houston but it's going to look super when it's all complete. There is not a single construction hand around because of the recent rain,so that's another two days or more of wait time. In the meantime I'll just have to get used to taking Airline or Teakwood to get to the main thoroughfares.
