Critical Mass

On Youtube there is a video titled "Pissed Catholic Mother". In this video a kid told his mom he had become an atheist. She responded with much profanity and threatened the child by denying him Christmas gifts. She was incapapable of presenting a reasoned response to the arguments given by her son. She seemed like the type of mother who went to Church simply because that is what you are "supposed" to do. That is all well and good, but if you don't understand what the Church really teaches then you cannot keep your kids Catholic.
In the responses to this video, it was atheist after atheist congratulating the kid and showing their utter ignorance of the teachings of Christianity by condemning some ridiculous parody of what Christianity actually is. Furthermore, they condemn all Christians as being intolerant of atheists. I wonder if these people have ever studied what happens to Christians when a government is atheist. To me this represents a need to inundate the world as much as possible with the truths of Christ's Church if for no other reason than that we don't have to hear people embarrass themselves with their ignorance. You can find the video by going to http// and doing a search for the title mentioned above, but it is not for the person with sensitive ears. It is, however, a documented instance of the weakness of cultural Catholicism.
