← Dawkins calls for 'Catholic' honesty

DrDroid's Avatar Jump to comment 11 by DrDroid

In my experience Catholics, and religious people in general, really don't subject their professed beliefs to much critical analysis, at least beyond a certain point. They've been raised in a certain religion and it just feels right to them. Attempts to question their beliefs are countered with the "hands over the ears" tactic. It takes courage and a questioning mind to reject early childhood teachings (but it does happen in some small percentage of people).
