Modern American society drives people to become Christians, and then the Catholic Church drives them away.
From an articvle in Natiuonal Review, by Michael Brendan Dougherty
There is an undeniable psychological tension between my religious
belief that I cannot have hope for salvation outside the visible,
institutional Church and my honest conviction that of all the
institutions and societies that intersect with my life, the Church is by
far the most corrupt, the most morally lax, the most disillusioning,
and the most dangerous for my children. In that tension, personal prayer
will dry up like dew at noon.
