Faith v Religion

21 Apr 2013

In an op-ed published in the Cleveland Plain Dealer newspaper, Shaker Heights, Ohio's Louis H. Pumphrey (The Politics of Catholic priest excommunication, Plain Dealer April 20, 2013) wrote a piece about the Catholic Church, He is either a sour observer of the Catholic faith or a disgruntled, "fallen away" Catholic.

While he makes some justified observations regarding pedophile priests and those who sheltered them, I must inform him that the vast majority of American Catholics, the undersigned included, have not abandoned their faith . We have  retained it despite many human failings within our Catholic Church.  

Thank God there's a difference between faith and religion.
