A place where you could be politically left, but devotionally conservative. Like Dorothy Day was.
I never had any patience whatsoever with the contempt that was heaped upon so-called cafeteria Catholics. It seems to me that cafeteria Catholics are Catholics who are trying to make their way in a modern world with the religious inheritance that they have; they have to figure out how to be both authentically Catholic and, at the same time, true to their other ways of being in the world. Which is fine.
It’s okay to be a ‘bad’ Catholic | parhillblesin.cf
We need a space where Catholics can explore the tensions between religious and social views without fear of condemnation and a sort of exile. I also am pro gay rights. I have a gay child. That this, in a way, is what it means to be a respectable Catholic. It is thought that to be a Catholic is not to be out there advocating for transgender issues, for example.
In the same way that young people wear certain clothes, they want to present themselves in a certain way.

It might also be that before Pope Francis there was simply no way to be liberal and Catholic. It might have been the same kind of protective covering that a Catholic in the s would have used.
There was a certain kind of protective covering. For me, this is the place to begin challenging and thinking theologically and devotionally about how one lives with these tensions. How can one work through these tensions as a contemporary Catholic? But where is the space within Catholicism as a whole, except perhaps at a few Catholic universities? Where can you actually do that? Catholics on both sides, intolerant Catholics on both the right and the left, contributed to creating a truly airless environment. Pope Francis is doing a very good job within the constraints of a very difficult position and within the constraints of a very problematic inheritance from his predecessor.
I support gay rights, but I also want to be a faithful Catholic. But we still need to do more work.
How To Know Whether You’re Trusting God…or Just Being Stupid
Where is the space where these conversations can happen? How can we think theologically and devotionally about these topics? They are not. The question is, how do you come up with interesting combinations of those various possibilities? From either the left or the right.

The dialogue often becomes quite dark. There are often thunderbolts of judgment coming from both the left and the right. They were always looking over their shoulders for the feared judgment, trying to figure out who they were in relation to this church, being confronted all the time by figures who were ready to condemn them. It might be these things have become clearer over time. And for many years, I was apprehensive to be perceived too clearly as a Catholic. In academia, any hint of my faith life was going to mean that my scholarship was going to be viewed under a cloud of suspicion, I think.
That was the reality. So why not create an environment in which these understandings and practices can be talked through and figured out, and Catholics can make their way toward what they see and what the polls are already telling us? I mean, I like the city, and I go there all the time. That would be a very sad and limiting assignment for a professor.
My role is to teach the lived diversity of the faith as I see it in the past. I have also been surprised by how powerful the example of the pope is. You know, Catholicism is an institution like every other institution, and as the leader goes, so go all the sheep. But it is pretty striking to me nonetheless how everything feels different now and how quickly it shifted. I am stunned. It has no relevance. Instead, look at what the church teaches about women.
Who is this? John Paul II, may he rest in peace, was really indicative of this tendency.
You begin with an ideal of a woman, you define the ideal, and then what happens in real life has to be accountable to the ideal. The current atmosphere under Pope Francis could open the way for a new empiricism. What are Catholics actually doing? They even do this with Francis, and I worry sometimes. At that point, I stop behaving as a Catholic they need me to be.
No, it goes back centuries, really. We might find that they actually were very interesting Catholics. But these are Catholics who are really struggling to live with the dual inheritance both of their faith and the world they live in. If we were to come up with a list of bad Catholics, we might find that these were some of the most interesting Catholics who have somehow gone unnoticed because they fail to fit the standard stereotypes.
