Truth and "Catholic Guilt"

Truth and "Catholic Guilt"

Bt Stephen Hand,

Moses and the Commandments

I couldn't tell you how many times I've heard people blame their personal failures or psychological stresses on "Catholic guilt" in the last 20 years. It is as though the Church is the great rain cloud ever shadowing the grand Mardi Gras that so many expect life to be. All that stands in the way of a good old time is the Church and her teachings regarding sin. Whether subtle or not so subtle, we see this condemnation in the movies, in the general media, in politics and in some treatises from the theological far-Left. Not a few people leave the Church thinking to rid themselves of this vestige of "medieval thinking".
