The Pertinacious Papist has an interesting post on welcoming converts into the Church. Having gone through RCIA at a rather liberal parish, I can confirm many of the reflections and supporting comments. Oddly, I recall that one of the points they frequently touted about membership in the Catholic Church was Sacred Tradition. Yet most of them were quite happy dispensing with Tradition and Magisterial Authority when those sources of doctrine didn't jibe with personal preference.
