From what I've read, VOTF is "riding piggyback" on the sex abuse scandals in an effort to "liberalize" the RC Church - ( Some say, to turn it into what would amount to a Protestant denomination : ordination of women, elimination of clerical celibacy,approval of abortion, etc., etc. )
The fact they get such a warm reception from the Left is enough to raise cautionary hackles.
Voice of the Faithful would go nowhere fast if it had no support from at least a few bishops.
I am beginning to wonder if this group is not a front for more liberal elements in the American hierarchy who see their last, best chance for a formal secession from Rome.
Who in hell--literally--is behind this group?

You are so right as to the 'liberalization' of the RC Church. In some churches it has already begun on a scale so minute as to be imperceptible.
