I have always been sorely disappointed/disgusted that the Vatican has not leaned heaviliy on the damn bishops (choosing my words carefully) to deal more harshly with pro-aborts/pro-sodommites. This policy of "Oh, we don't want to be so harsh that we lose congregants" is ignorant - if the congregants continue to believe this crap, then you've already lost them. Ignoring the issues doesn't help, and allows more to stray. No way should any person, politician or otherwise, be allowed to receive Holy Communion. The thought of Fat Boy Kennedy receiving it makes me ill; thankfully, he will be dealt with later.
I've said it before many times - the Catholic Church is not a political organization whose doctrine can be changed over time through moral "change" or majority opinion. His Word and Teachings do not "evolve" - what is right is right, today as it was 2000 years ago.

We may get some more people back who couldn't take the BS anymore and left. I think it will work out for the better when the church starts upholding it's own laws.

you say His words and teachings don't evolve, but this easter season, the story of the thieves crucified on either side were changed to revolutionaries and the disciple that drew his sword and cut the ear of the attacker became someone in the crowd...
i fear that my church is trying to become more politically correct
