I swear, “lapsed Catholic” is like the get-out-of-jail-free card of religious denominations. It categorizes you neatly as respectably educated while still being somebody else’s problem.*

Mind you, if I use this particular fall back position any more, I suspect I’m actually gonna have to go make a donation to some nominally Catholic organization to cover my usage fees. (I suppose “Catholics for Wombats” or “Our Lady of Perpetual Scientific Inquiry” is a pipe dream, alas…)

*I suspect largely because I never try to use it on actual Catholics…
