I'm not sure if some people are lazy or deliberately insulting.

I was reading this article today about this Catholic priest who is stalking Conan O'Brien today and the article kept referring to the guy as "Reverend" rather than "Father."

Now Episcopalians (and other Christian faiths) might not think there's much of a difference, but I've noticed that this sort of thing happens a lot over here and I think it's a little insulting. You wouldn't dream of calling a Rabbi or an Imam Reverend, so don't call a Catholic priest Reverend either please. You might think that the Catholic religion is a little too hierarchical, but us Catholics don't and I don't believe you should be changing our religion to fit into your belief system.
