What is “modernity”? It’s an abstract, ever-changing idea. It’s a trend or a fad. Frankly, in today’s ever-changing world or situational ethics and morals, I like the fact that there’s a true compass like the Catholic Church that provides guidance. I may not always follow it, I may not always WANT to follow it, but it is specific, consistent, and time-tested. It doesn’t change just because it’s convenient or popular. It’s a foundation that is still badly needed in the world today.

Couldn’t have said it better.

The animosity towards the Church is deserved. I believe arrogance, rather than humbleness is what pervades the hierarchy of the Church. Don’t blame the people who point out the ‘human-ness’ of the Church. The humans’ actions were so vile and despicable that they overshadow the message. Maybe this is why we need to ‘kill the messenger’ and start a new Church based on the teachings of humbleness, personal responsibility, and I don’t know, maybe equality among genders. [Italics mine]

Which I find inventive, if nothing else.
