Ok...I need some back plot here...


I don't know the back plot, but my guess would be that it has something to do with the resurgence of the sex-abuse scandal and its connection with the Pope. I don't know -- my husband was a cradle Republican, so to speak, and at a certain point he looked around and said "this is not my party" and left. He was also a cradle Methodist, and he no longer believes in God. I can imagine circumstances in which I'd no longer identify or wish to be identified as American -- some of them not much of a stretch from the most heinous behavior of the previous administration.

It's very hard to imagine how I would react to the sex-abuse scandal if I were Catholic, but I think I'd have a lot of trouble with it and a lot of trouble believing that a merciful God would put men who swept the abuse under the rug in charge of the whole shooting match. But, not being Catholic, I'm only guessing.
