Thanks for asking. I'm a "MS Vet" that has pulled away...
To be honest, I got really tired of the anti-Catholic and anti-Boy Scout propaganda here (from some members). My Faith and the Church have been CRITICALLY important in my recovery, and I sure felt the BSA and Catholic Church were VERY safe places for my kids. And now that my kids are older, I know they have been instrumental in building their character.
I feel unsafe to even mention that I am a Catholic here. And I NEED to feel safe with that. I really distrust people with political agendas disguised as "support." The public forums are full of that now.
I mostly lurk now, but do appreciate one of the Healing Circles I participate in here at MS.
