With a rosary around her neck, she told the interviewers, "I start every one of my days praying. I go to church every week. I went to Catholic schools my entire life."
But then she said, "I pick and choose... I think I'm probably a 'Cafeteria Catholic.'"
"I have a dispute with a lot of the Catholic Church. Even though I consider myself a Catholic in good standing, I disagree with a lot of the teachings of the Church... I don’t believe that if someone’s divorced they shouldn’t get Communion; I don’t believe that people who are gay shouldn’t be accepted into the Church… I’m pro-choice, I believe women should have that right."
She called Msgr. Lloyd Torgerson, her pastor at St. Monica's Church in Santa Monica, "a huge part of my life."
Let's hope, then, that Msgr. Torgerson has tried to straighten her out and will keep trying.
