Hi Angela, A LOT of Catholics here in the U.S. have 'voted with their feet'. The church ( & parochial school ) I attended as a child is the only one of four Catholic churches within a few miles of each other in Pittsburgh that remains open. They call it consolidation, but that's just another word for empty pew syndrome. I have been a happy Atheist for MANY decades, & will soon depart as one.

Hello Angela, it was nice reading your comments on the religion in Africa blog. In my 20s I did some volunteering abroad. I must confess the number one reason I have not since volunteered is religion. I've found that most volunteer/aid organisations require that their members do not discuss religion, and since I've always seen it as the principal causal agent for the need for aid in the first place. I could no longer participate... How could we possibly, logically, chose to help people get a better life and better health if we refuse to broach the number one problem! Anyway, I commend you on your years of efforts. I have been only once, to S. Africa, where I spent 6 months. The objective was both educational (I got my captain's licence and diving certificates in Durban) and cultural exploration. I found my time in S.Africa quite memorable.

Keep me in mind about a year from now-- I'm still a student. It would be excellent to learn from your experience and to be allowed to return to such a beautiful and underappreciated continent.

I spent a month in Zimbabwe when I was fourteen. I have always, always, always wanted to return to Africa and I hope to through my nursing eventually. Thank you for your work there!

Angela, it sounds like you do some good work. I bet that you have some important stories to tell about the mistreatment of women and death due to the Catholic Church teachings in Africa, no? We would love to hear those stories when you feel the need to let them go. Welcome to TA!
