    promote the separation of progressive & "traditional" Catholics.  Many of my friends & Catholic relatives donate nothing to their parish that goes to the hierarchy.  RCC attendance is continuing to fall in the developed world.

    The hierarchy's financial & administrative control over non-parish organizations is weakening.  IMHO, not fast enough, but it is weakening.

    The RCC is not a democracy, but the disconnect between the hierarchs & progressive Catholics can't last for ever.

    Love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we'll change the world..-- Jack Layton
