Papist PR

CatholicsComeHome.org is a public relations campaign by the Catholic Church to attract non-practicing Catholics back to the Church.
~
Can't blame the effort.
~
But as one of those who this message is ostensibly directed to, I think that it substantially misses the mark.  People like myself stopped practicing because of the corruption, bureaucracy, and coldness of the Church.  However, the campaign basically says that we have "strayed" and should now return because of the ultimate goodness of the institution.
~
Historically speaking, this is holy bullshit.
~
The Catholic Church has been a method of social control and the accumulation of wealth, and is notoriously unresponsive to it's "flock".   Women have a second position, and celebracy is a crock, conjured up so that Church property would not be subject to claims by offspring of Church clericals.  
~
And the infallibility of the Pope is an insult to the intelligence of anyone who can observe rational fact.  The outright corruption and political deceit by many who have sat on the throne of St. Peter is a historical record. 
~
Showtime on cable is featuring a series entitled, "The Borgias" which details the exploits of a pontiff in 1500.  Probably bad timing for CatholicsComeHome.org.

The Church should seriously consider changing some of its basic premises if it wants to attract a strayed flock......   rather than reaffirm its claim to the moral high ground.
