Would you look at that.

In Saquist's defense I believe he was talking about the people that actually run the institution of the Catholic Church not its followers. Saquist please correct me if I'm wrong.

It's just not correct, the Catholic Church in many aspects is a lot like the Pharisee in the bible. There are many rituals and traditions that are oposite to Jesus teachings. Now they are not dangerous anymore, in the past they were used by the mighty to strengthen their position and justify violence, supression etc.pp.
You make a good point and this is what I find interesting. When you ask many followers of the Catholic faith what they believe many of them are opposed to things the Catholic faith preaches but they call themselves Catholic because they were raised in that faith.
