Today's, Tuesday's show, was just excellent! Fr. Roy is RIGHT on the money, I was raised as about Catholic as you could be short of the semminary. My father was on the way to priesthood when he realized he wanted to have a family. Prior to his death he was working on being a Deacon the closest he could get with out leaving his family. But as with Vatican II, the church made some changes to get out of the Dark ages, yet they did not want to go any further. Now as the numbers are falling fast you would think they could see they needed to continue to change or they will continue the disappearing act their congregations are doing. And your first caller I think it was, showed the problem with the church, and the male pigs that they are. I no longer will enter a Catholic church for any reason. They (the Church) can "Concelebrate" a wedding of a catholic and Lutheran, but they can't accept what he did not because of the religion, but because it was a woman. How sorry it has become.
