In my experience, the interpretation of the rules and expectations of being a Catholic can change with a change in priest in a parish and from parish to parish. Anyone who has moved or traveled can attest to a wide discrepancy in expectations. There is no such thing as consistent teachings from parish to parish never mind between diocese. We also know a lot priests are homosexuals as has been shown by the lifestyles of men leaving the priesthood. This is a horrible expectation and encourages people to lie to keep their job.
Not seeing the big picture of consequences for choices, words and actions results in people wanting cheap and free. I speak to people who have never made the connection between wanting to buy as cheaply as possible and not wanting a wage cut or to see businesses shut down. As a speaker and author I am often asked why I don't speak for free as it "gets my name out there." They have a hard time getting that I don't want my name out there as a free speaker. My writing is also of value so getting paid for it is not unrealistic. We need to educate people to see their free is someone's loss of income.
