Response to No Vested Interest (Reply #2)

5. I'm sure it would be a meeting of equals

Though I've never met the current priest. He's from Asia, where there are many Catholic clergy who are also practicing Bhuddists. Since I have strong Buddhist leanings myself, I'd be cool with that. The previous one was certainly not, and I couldn't open my mouth around him w/o an argument. He especially hated Jesuits and Dorothy Day, some of my biggest heroes including the Dali Lama. But even the first priest was far from the only problem, and the person who vowed she'd see me in jail, for instance, then proceeded to lie about missing articles from an area where she claimed to have seen me 'hanging around', well - she and the rest of the Witch Patrol are still there.

But it is what it is, and one way or another I'll have to manage. With God's help and the encouragement of our online group, I'm sure I will. After all, it's not as if I were St. Paul chained in a dungeon. This town's a little better than that.
