This poll is garbage because the only criteria they use for one being considered as "Catholic" is that one says he or she is. A real Catholic believes what the Church teaches, which is that marriage is between one man and one woman. Those who disagree with that are not Catholics; they are Protestants, by definition.

As I mentioned earlier, it should read 52% of Americans are out of touch with Catholicism. Not the other way around.

With the conclave to elect the next pope set for Tuesday, the College of Cardinals has been meeting all week to discuss the priorities of the church and the qualities its new pope must possess. Further, the College of Cardinals must also consider the attitudes of the Catholic people when electing the next pope.

A Quinnipiac University poll released Friday indicates that while 52% of Catholics said the church is moving in the right direction, 52% of those polled also said the church is out of touch with the views of Catholics in America.
