Sad but true. Many of the strident ones causing trouble are simply following the edicts of their minister/pastor. And to think the Protestant Revolution came about because Martin Luther and others thought to be good Christians, one HAD to read the Bible, not just accept what the priest told you.
Of course, given the problems literacy has caused for the Powers That Be over the ages since Gutenberg, perhaps the Catholic Church was more far-sighted than is generally believed.
