A telling anecdote from last weekend:

One of the attendees - a serious Catholic with a sophisticated knowledge of and devotion to the Church's social teaching - told me of having a passionate young evangelical over to dinner a couple weeks earlier.

This evangelical was leading an intentional Christian community in the city and was intensely interested in Catholic teaching and spiritual practices. He was reading Thomas Aquinas, very knowledgeable about the Church's social teaching, etc.

As the evangelical man told his new-found Catholic friend: "You are the first Catholic I've ever met who actually believes what the Church teaches."

Ouch.
