Today, I met someone from UK in a Catholic chatroom who claimed that he is a devout Catholic (yea I know I should be doing revision instead!=P). The proof? He wears the Rosary all the time. I was pretty impressed at first, but as we continued chatting and I mentioned about the Church's teachings.. there, I found out that he didn't know what it really means to be a 'devout' Catholic.
And then, I realized that Pope Benedict was right when he spoke of the dictatorship of relativism that affects many Catholics today(I didn't quite believe that at first).
'Sex before marriage is wrong.' I said.
'I don't agree... besides it's not a crime.' he said.
'As a Catholic, you should follow the church's teachings.'
'...I do what I believe is right.'
I couldn't believe those words came from a Catholic. I really wonder how many catholics of the same kind are out there? Why do they claim to be devout catholics but then never practice what they claimed to be?
*Sigh* This is just so sad, isn't it?
