    The sincerity and integrity of any religion comes into question when said religion spend inordinate amounts of money to build extravagant and ornate buildings. The perceived excess is what paints a less than flattering and humble picture. Many religions have this perception issue.

    While living in Germany working for the Army, I gave a young Army Specialist a ride to Grafenwoehr. He asked if my coworker was Jewish and I said yes. He thought it a shame, nice person who is denied final salvation. This is what his Church taught him.
    I believe any man or woman who lives a good, sharing life, helps others and does no harm is destined to a marvelous final reward. I do not care if you are active in a religion or not. People speak of God, and I ask "which one?" Many cultures believe in a deity that gives examples of a good life. Read the Pope's "Disciples of the Lord and not ideology".
    This Pope has me wondering if I should go back to Mass. It has been awhile and there is a void in my life since leaving, maybe this is it.
