Thanks to the Wild Reed Blog for this interesting post about Disaffected Catholics and 'bad Catholics' written by Richard McBrien recently and appeared in the National Catholic Reporter. I have particluar sympathies with the following
"Some bishops convey the impression that the church's official teachings on contraception, divorce-and-remarriage, homosexuality, the ordination of women, and obligatory celibacy for priests are so clear and compelling that only a person of bad will could possibly disagree with them.
And yet there are many committed, well-educated, still-practicing Catholics, including many priests and religious women, who do disagree with these teachings, in whole or in part."
