One more thing.

This man was my uncle and he was raised Irish Catholic. He and the wife he loved dearly had eight children. He loved every one of them. He loved all children but especially his own.

I remember years ago when he said to me (in his beautiful Brooklyn accent) "Sweethawt, I quit being a catholic the day the doctah told me that your Aunt would die if she had another baby."

That's morality. All the theology in the world is meaningless. It was simple for him. That's the day he quit being a catholic.
