Most people, even if they leave the church, deep down in their hearts there would remain a lurking sense of guilt.
In history, there have been several people who opposed the church, yet during their last moments of life on earth, they simply surrendered and gave all property and riches to the church in order to redeem their soul!
They examine their own conscience, listen to God’s voice and decide!
Parents understand it perfectly well, because at one time, one’s child, is going to decide about something which one does not agree to.
Most probably it is for the first time in the history of the church that the adults in faith are being treated as adults.
In simple words, they assume that the church should say what’s black and white.
Incidentally Pope Francis mentioned the grey colour!!
