Also, there are alot of bitter ex-Catholics in America, that contribute to the seemingly anti-Christian bias.
The legalistic, no-questions-allowed, miss mass once, or otherwise screw up, and you are going to hell attitude many received pre-Vatican II, followed by the nearly Protestant rennovations after Vatican II left alot of Catholics bitter, bewildered, or blase. This allowed the truly hostile ex-Catholics the freedom to send off their vollies with no repurcussions.
Then followed by the Jimmy Swaggarts, Jim Bakers, etc. for immoral swindlers in the name of Chrisitianity; and the Falwells and Robertson's as political kingpins, meddlers and buffoons -- the Christian community has given the liberals in the church alot of targets and the secular media alot of fodder.
Let us pray for them and for ourselves.
