agreement. Many would see the failings of the church leaders (and I'll switch to a more generic use rather than Catholic-specific) as far-enough astray to more than challenge one's faith in those leaders.

Where you find comfort others find skepticism and dissonance.

Now, I'm with you, so I'm not arguing my personal position, but you're asking me (a hypothetical "none") to take on faith that the institution via its institutional leaders, capable of succumbing to acts I find completely unfathomable in my mind will not lead me astray.

Its understandable why some would turn toward their own discernment.
