"And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward."
But I'm also meh? I know several Catholics who are good coworkers, neighbors, and friends. They like the association and whatnot. While I'm aware Catholics have had their share of misdeeds, I'd say their biggest problem is that they let the Church fix the Pedophile problem instead of the Parents of the abused Children, or those parents in the Church who give a hoot about this kind of abuse.
Not that they all had attentive Parents, but any Catholic that would allow that to happen to a Child, especially those without Blood Relatives to respond, has earned a Church that will constantly have to stand up to great scrutiny.
Not what Christ had in mind, I imagine, given His quote above.
