Don't just point fingers at the Catholic Church, all churchs have lost their way by becoming more progressive.......46 years ago when my wife and I were getting married, I went to every church, but the Catholic andJewish, and were turned down because I had been divorced .......had to get a Justice of the Peace to do the most will marry fags, preach from their own self written bibles, or leave out the imprortant parts of the KJV.....They spend big bucks on additions to play basket ball, volley ball, saunas ect...when we have people in this town sleeping on the streets...why? To get people to join the "Chruch."

"but the Catholic andJewish?"

Why didn't you try there? I was married in the Catholic Church and divorced 7years later. I thought I was forsaken and found out that I was mistaken, not the Church. After a tribunal, I was granted an annulment. A post note to this; I married again prior to me rediscovering the Church.

Sometimes, we think the Church has changed but, it is us who has changed. Especially our perception.

The Carlos's of the world are nothing more than a "knat" that tries to shake the foundation of the weak in their faith.

In 1967, if one church said no, why would the others say yes....different time in history...I know of churchs that don't beleive in serving in the military, giving or receiving blood transfusions, beleive in a book of Morman and use the bible to take parts and change them for their book of morman, churchs that have to confess to a priest because they don't feel like they have the ability to confess to Christ..All kinds of religion out there, pick what ya like and go for it.....I stay a home and can read the KJV and not worry about what others beleive.

Me too. I'm waiting for my church to come to my town and I live in a 150,000 population city. Not your run of the mill mainstream Sunday worshipping Christian church but instead a Messiannic church.

The pope has renounced the papal throne. Long live the progressive pope! Such are the rallying cries from establishment voices wanting to see the Catholic Church loosen up now that Pope Benedict XVI has decided to step down. But maybe people should listen to the Church's actual views.

Mary Hasson from the Ethics and Public Policy Center has been doing some unique work looking into what Catholic women know and want from their Church. It's scandalous and yet not entirely surprising that she found only 13 percent of Catholic women who occasionally attend Mass accept Church teaching on contraception.

It's not a shock...
