CHAPTER 1 The Church: What It Says about Itself, the World, and What Will Happen to You When You Die
The Roman Catholic Church is like the weather: everybody talks about it, but nobody does anything about it. They can’t, not in the most fundamental sense, any more than they can change earth’s climate.
The truths that the Church teaches about God and man, right and wrong, and the purpose of human history are simply there. You can embrace them enthusiastically as liberating and beautiful. (What the saints do) You can reluctantly admit that they are probable, and obey them to be on the safe side. (What most of us “bad Catholics” do)
Or you can insist that some or all of them are false. (What non-Catholics do) What you can’t do is alter those truths. (What liberal Catholics try to do)
Not even a pope can manage that. Catholics believe that the Holy Spirit would intervene and prevent him, exercising the divine veto power that we call “infallibility.”
