Why should we remain Catholic when the Church is infected with corrupt people? Jeff understands that the Church is in trouble and being Catholic is not easy at this time, but the Church still has something to offer.
The answer is simple: this is the Church that Jesus founded.
Though corruption has affected the Church in the past, there has also been a lot of good that has come from it. From universities and the scientific method to working for the poor to sponsoring the arts, the one, holy, Catholic, and apostolic Church has had a major impact on the world. Do not leave the bridegroom. Set your face like a flint toward the Cross.
“Me becoming Catholic really didn’t have anything to do with any particular bishop or bishops and me remaining Catholic doesn’t have anything to do with any foolish bishops or cardinals in current history. Me becoming Catholic was because of Jesus and his family and what he offered us in the sacraments and the Father’s plan.”
