Schütz and Past Elder reach agreement

Finally at the end of a long comments discussion here, PE and I reach a point of agreement:

First, he makes it clear that when he says "the Catholic Church is a preposterous and monstrous sham" he is not saying that it is a "preposterous and monstrous sham of the church of the Creed". That clarification helps a lot.

And he also helpfully points out the fact that our different perspectives come from differing but parallel experiences:
"You joined [Catholicism] because in the post conciliar Church you found the church you learnt in Lutheranism; I left the post conciliar Church because the church I learnt in Catholicism I could not find there."
That seems to be about as good a summary of both our agreement and differences as one could possibly get.

See how helpful dialogue can be?
