I don't know why you have to choose between the two. Maybe pray for the member who asked you this. As long as the soccer group is moral and not doing anything against Catholic teaching, it should be fine I would think. I would also suggest you talk to your priest in a private conversation about this situation.
However, if for some reason, the group came to you and said, "be a member of us or the Church", I hope you would choose the Church.
No MLS for me really, Premier League and UEFA.
thank you for your input. There is no doubt in my mind, that I would choose The Church over soccer anyday... I actually stopped playing soccer, because it interfered with my Ushering.
so who is your fav. team? I'm a Chelsea and Real Madrid fan
Arsenal are looking really good this season in the English Premiership.
