Coexist? I have a better idea.

CONVERT. That’s right. Convert.

Over the last four or five decades, Catholics from all walks of life – clergy, laity and religious alike – have expended way too much time and energy practicing feel-good ecumenism while making far too little effort (if any) to invite those who wander in the darkness of religious error to conversion.

“But… isn’t all that diversity wonderful!”

Ummm… no it’s not wonderful, it’s the product of sin. Now, don’t get me wrong, “getting along” (or coexisting as the bumper sticker generation calls it) is all well and good, not as an end unto itself, but as the first of many steps on a much longer road that leads to conversion to the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church.
