Those of us who fall on the more conservative side of the Catholic ledger know what it's like to face criticism for our (gasp!) traditional beliefs, or even downright disdain and oppression from the active, liberal majority.
However, the tide is slowly turning as the hippie generations are dying off, or abandoning the faith altogether. A younger, more vibrant, active faith-filled population is starting to take root. But we're a long way from where we'd like to be. Which is why I wanted to share this article today.
Pat Archbold, co-founder of Creative Minority Report, and contributor to the National Catholic Register had a piece published on Monday entitled "A Long Way To Go."
You'll have to go read it yourself, because I don't think I can summarize it adequately. Once you read it, you'll see it's very indicative of the uphill battle us traditionally-minded Catholics face.
Keep the faith! Truth must win in end!
