The same percentage of Catholics voted for the most pro-abortion president in history, that would be Obama. Even higher percentages of Jews voted for the most anti-Israel president in history. That would be Obama too. Why even bother to call yourself a Catholic if you don't even believe in the doctrines?

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.
