exactly !You know, I suspected the bolded stuff all along. I have read of some who became Mormons or JWs as adult balked at some of their doctrines at the beginning, but figured it was their fault they felt that way, and put it on the shelf, so to speak. They had to tamp down their unease about it, in order to be accepted. So, the same must happen to some who become Catholics.
But still, that video of the tacky looking statue, was so shocking and in your face. Its the red flags waving and all the bells and sirens going off in one's head. A person has to be pretty calloused to not sense that.
