Troglodite, you are correct! However, around here, most of the clergy in the parishes are very conservative, and you hear weekly about speaking up, for some the first time in their lives -- defending the faith like never before. The young priests coming out of seminary are on fire for the Lord and the faith of the Church - a few weeks ago our new priest said this: "I hope to be a priest for the next 50 years. However, with the way things are going in this country, and the attack on the church, I am afraid I may be saying mass in a basement somewhere in hiding, instead of this beautiful sanctuary." A spontaneous loud round of applause happened after he said that.
