Letter: Stories about people leaving Catholic church are not newsworthy
The article on the front page of the Post-Bulletin's June 24 C section was quite impossible to miss.
I'm a practicing Roman Catholic and have been all my life. People have been leaving the Catholic church for many years. Some have joined other churches, and others have started their own churches, which seems to be the case in the seven people pictured with the June 24 article.
I want it to be understood that I have no problem with people leaving the church or even starting their own. If you are a member of an organization and cannot follow its rules, you absolutely should leave that organization and find one that is a better fit.
My question is why the Post-Bulletin would feel this would be of interest to the rest of us, both members of the four Catholic parishes in Rochester and those of other denominations. Could this article possibly be mistaken for an advertisement?
