We're good friends with a couple, let's call them the Wilsons, both of whom are active in the Church. They're both as liberal as liberal can be. If you ever wanted to meet the kind of Catholics who would have been marching in the streets of Buenos Aires in support of Juan Peron, this pair is it. They supported the California ban on the death penalty because they want to be pro-life, but also supported Barack "It's OK To Kill As Many Babies As Possible" Obama. They are dyed-in-the-wool progressives.
The Wilson's daughter goes to a demanding Catholic high school. The Wilsons are excellent parents. They have high expectations, are lavish in the support and praise of their daughter, and consistent with their punishments. The young lady's learning cycle has always looked like this.
|The Wilsons provide their daughter with a safe training ground for the real world.|
|The Wilsons are big on "compassion".|
Talk about faith-based initiatives.
