Q: How is /r/Catholicism different from /r/Catholic?
A: /r/Catholic is run by anti-Catholic trolls (see this news item). Our much larger subreddit is actually devoted to discussing Catholicism.

Q: How is flair used here?
A: Currently, we use flairs for offices. If you see users flaired, they have been verified by the moderators. We are unlikely to have self-applied flair anytime in the near future (search for the topic here to understand why).
