    yes - I know more about the catholic church and her doctrines and dogmas than do most catholics - I know at hey believe about the Eucharist and frankly share that belief. ANYHOW - I like how the burden is put on the outsider. He's supposed to know without having been told.

    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    I don't know that is really fair. If I turn up at a Hindu ceremony, I wouldn't expect to be included in the ritual aspects. Back in the day, most people were generally aware that various churches had "distinctives" that limited the participation of non-believers and non-members.

    I think his error says more about his failure to understand his own church and maybe a general lack of good manners. ;)

    I know what you meant, and I was trying to show that at least in the mid 80s, this church was pretty alive.

    There is a huge difference between hindu and Christian. Not so much between differing Christian sects.
