It seems to me that more and more we are being asked to choose between a Church that is "strong in numbers" or a Church that is "strong in faith". If a religion, any religion, needs to be based on popular opinion rather than on faith, tradition, morals, etc. then what is the point of religion at all? What is the point of a Church or a priest calling itself Catholic if it does not intend to uphold Catholic teachings and catechize the lay people of their parish? Has anyone else noticed this trend? Is anyone else alarmed about this?
