The blog is called, liberal catholic sports music. A recent posting is called “Sixteen Reasons.” It is worth reading:
A couple of years ago I came to "blogdom" with the main purpose of learning. One thing I wanted to learn was were there any Catholics of a reasonable and, yes, liberal bent. Well, there may be a few. I have not found them, despite a good faith effort. So I will change my profile to reflect my findings. For the time, I will list, not exhaustively, why I find the Catholic Church difficult to understand and follow.
I have difficulty being in a church that:
One . . .
Two . . .
Read the list. It is interesting. I don’t agree with everything he says at liberal catholic sports music: Sixteen Reasons
Just a couple of examples:
1) John Paul II says authenticity of Shroud of Turin is to be decided by science then says it is the burial cloth of Jesus. Actually he did say that authenticity of the shroud should be decided by science but said he BELIEVES that it is Jesus’ burial cloth. The word “believes” is important.
John Paul II said regarding questions about the shroud’s authenticity, “[T]he Church does not have specific competence to pronounce on these questions. It entrusts to scientists the task of continuing to investigate to find suitable answers to questions regarding the Shroud.”
2) Teaches being married is an impediment to a close relationship to God. Actually he is referring to vocations, not everyone in their daily lives. I certainly disagree with celibacy for priests but that is the point, not the broad-brush interpretation.
