culture in the US

This is food for thought - for me at least.  I was raised to stand on my own and rely on myself - not my parents.  I moved out at 17 and never really went back.  Summers I stayed with an aunt and worked in DC/NoVa.  When I graduated from college, I found a job, an apartment, and began my own life.  They were in Europe and never really offerred to have me move home. 

Thank you for posting this.

Barren Harvest is really good...

Whether this is legal, who knows? The site hasn't been taken down in 2 years since I last visited it, so... :)

I just Googled Varian Harvest and found a whole site of Dr. Rao's work for free.

Barren Harvest was totally awesome!  Having been protestant for 26 yrs. before finding Catholicism, I could totally see the points he made!
It also made me realize that some of the problems I still have in my spiritual life are an inheritance from all  my years as a Protestant.  Now I have to figure out what the solution is.  LOL

There are a couple of articles on there about the protestant influence on AMerican culture that are really good as well.  I found one called American Dream, Catholic Nightmare, particularly fascinating.  http://jcrao.freeshell.org/AmericanDream.html
