I watched the WCC vote on EWTN. The irony was that Cardinal Egan voted aginst it as he was very worried about who would do the representing over at WCC. (Probably was afraid a non-homosexual would be sent.) Later Bp. Skystad won the Presidency so I am sure Egan's fears were soothed.
The newer, younger crop of Bishops don't appear to be the die hard, yellow dog Democrats of old. They may not be as 'Traditional' as some might want, but they are a lot more orthodox than the older guys were, and more willing to speak out for the teachings of the Church.
