And, Androol, are you a strict, traditional Catholic, now, who thinks

There's no mention of pre-marital sex in the Times article.
It does end with this note:
I also say that, at some point, the religion petered out. That we didn’t
go to church any more. That, imperceptibly, everyone stopped believing.
And I say that, when my mother died unexpectedly five years ago, and my
father’s oldest friend from the monastery put his arm around him at her
funeral and said “You will see her again”, my father didn’t believe a word
of it. And neither did I.
So, win-win-win for the Nixeys. Two people rescued themselves
from the grip of belief, found love and raised a family.
Nothing to say, Andrew, about the wrecking of rival religions'
sanctuaries statuary etc? Hypatia's murder by the parabalani?
All just "doing the Lord's work?"
