    The congregation at the church I go to is about 60/40 white/black. There are a lot more black Catholics than you think.

    I gave up the Church for Lent in 1975, have not been a Catholic since (left Christianity entirely later that year).

    Reckon I stand corrected. How about those churches in DC?
    If the military wanted you to have a spouse, or family, they would have issued you one.

    I'm with you. Gave it all up after turning 18 after having forcefully, mandatorily, grown up in it. Been trying to un-program myself ever since.

    The structure of the catholic church gives fewer opportunities for self-segregation. While people may drive to get to a congregation they find more welcoming, typically you have one catholic church in each community and that's where people go regardless of skin color. While there are a few 100% black catholic parishes, they are mostly in urban locations where they reflect the makeup of the surrounding community.

    I was 18 that year, tipping point was the Jesuit priest who was our guest instructor for CCD the evening of 16 March 1975. His topics, revealed after he chased out our regular instructors so we would not feel inhibited by their presence, reincarnation (including past life recall) and human auras/energy fields (how to feel and direct them). My thoughts, here's an intellectual storm trooper of Holy Mother Church teaching us stuff not in the Catechism...hmmm. what else is the Church not telling me?

    I know this will not be popular; However as a non-practicing Catholic, my first question is: What was anyone, let alone a child doing anywhere near the alter. When I was a child I was scared as hell to go anywhere near it.(Pun intended) If I did, I was VERY careful.(Because I feared the wrath of GOD). We don't know what happened right before this. How respectful is it for the family to be in such a sacred area?
