    I thin Catholicism is the most misunderstood

    sect of Christianity. But recently we've been making many improvements by embracing science as a way to find God and recognizing and accepting homosexuality. Although gay marriage will never be allowed, I feel like the Church has it's reasons for forbidding it.
