Sorry, but he's right. If you want proof, I can introduce you to my *very*
Catholic mother-in-law, who refused to attend her own son's Handfasting
(Pagan Wedding Ceremony) for religious reasons. If you are accepting of
them, that's wonderful, but I don't think it's very likely that you're in a
majority just yet.
I must admit, though, that the Catholics aren't nearly the worst.
whose mother-in-law is a very nice person except when religious topics come up
