Are Catholics too scrupulous?

However, if you look around, I hardly get the impression that Catholics are too scrupulous. The number of Catholics I know who know nothing about the Faith and care little about what they do know puts the lie to that idea.

There is a specifically Catholic species of scrupulosity, to be sure. It seems to be connected with a caricature of God looking to cast people into Hell for the slightest transgression. This seems pervasive in online Trad Catholicism; I'm not sure that's the case in real life.

I don't know.. I have often had that thought, that God doesn't really like us humans much... laugh but kinda not funny when u come down to it.. Sometimes I just don't get God and what appears to be his apathetic attitude. Yes, we are sinners but as long as we don't commit mortal sin.. why would God be overly displeased w/ us?
