Maybe being the first Christian denomination to cave on contraception back in 1930 wasnt such a good idea after all ... ROTFLMAO! So caving on contraception is the culprit? LOL!

I didn't use the word "culprit," but it was either the beginning of the end or a prominent signpost along the way.
Big mountains fall one rock at a time. When you depart from Christian orthodoxy on one point, it's like dominoes falling, but much more slowly. If you want an example that's more recent, look at the various liberal Prot denominations which started ordaining women in the 70's ... and unchaste homosexuals 40 years later.
