In regards to MacPasquale's comment: "but you're not going to find the answer summed up in a forum thread(and probably not in a single, isolated book). "

I don't see why not. Why can't the truth be simple? Why can't the answer be pointed out in a church document?

This situation seems a lot different than the difficulty of converting. In that situation the priest had to work to dismantle the barriers to the truth and then present the truth, so there were complexities there but this seems more like I'm being asked to weave and bob and contort myself and close one eye and so on to have this all make sense.
