I read an article on Integrated Catholic Life http://www.integratedcatholiclife.org/2011/11/hain-the-consequences-of-the-i-dont-want-to-offend-mindset/
that discusses having the courage to do simple things that make us Catholic that many have abandoned out of fear of offending somone, whatever their reason. Yet no one finds it offensive that women, God's greatest gift to humanity, are sent to war to die for a country that doesn't deserve them. No one finds it offensive that money is more important than the children we are blessed with. A man should find it sorrowful that he is unable or too greedy to provide for his wife and child(ren).
