Nice to see how charitable you are towards other Christians but then I suppose you don't think a Catholic is a Christian. Please note however that it is wise to get your facts straight. I read the Bible whenever I want. I do not have to ask any priest's permission or his interpretation of the Gospel. He would find that really strange that I don't have a mind of my own. Of course I tend to accept the Church's interpretation otherwise I wouldn't choose to remain a Catholic. If I disagreed on a lot of things, I would find another church. Yours in Christ
