I'm Catholic and I ADORE my Church

The hostility is a human reaction of being offended.

Catholics are humans and humans have conditions, sins, though we work to not sin and repent when we know we have and confess, and do pentance and pray for God's mercy, hope, help, forgiveness, peace, LOVE.

The Church is what you make it, so it reflects on the one which works to make it whatever they choose.

IOW, When one speaks of the Church and they are not by the Church or for the Church, those who are by the Church and for the Church are offended, for that one speaks by themselves for the world.
