There might be a few other reasons Catholics have drifted from pews

The absurdity of Jennifer Graham’s focus on the church organ as the key reason for Catholics being driven away from their church pews is only outmatched by the Globe’s willingness to legitimize such ignorance and venom as “opinion” (“Save the church! (kill the organs),” Op-ed, Oct. 25).

Can Graham seriously not think of any other reason other than organs that might have driven Catholics from their churches? What about the sex-abuse scandal and the Vatican’s position on topics such as female priesthood, homosexuality, contraception, and women’s rights to control their bodies?
