    there might be a change in policy with women, homosexuals, etc. Do you think the clergy is just making it up as they go?

    I see what you did there.

    •  Its not a policy change we're looking for. (1+ / 0-)

      I'd like to see an attitude change.  Treat fornication between consenting adults the same regardless of gender and stop the implicit charge that homosexuality (the orientation, not the act) is inherently sinful.  Baby steps, the Catholic church bet big on sexual orientation being 100% choice and when that is proven conclusively to be wrong the internal logic (or what's left of it) on sexual conduct will begin to collapse.  Or the new pope can just make heterosexuality a membership requirement and watch the number of parishioners with money to tithe shrink rapidly, whatever.  

      War doesn't determine who is right, only who is left. Better be left so you can determine later if you were right.
