The gospel of Social Justice was preached since Vatican II when many Catholics dreamed of being just like the mainline Protestants. This thank God has been slowly filtered out of the Church. If these priests and nuns had any sense of decency they would be attending mainline Protestant services and treating the Protestants to their " Brilliant" ideas.
Mainline Protestants have always been to the right of Catholics, and still are, until recent years, they were way, way to the right.

Having been exposed to the “Great” mainline ministers of the second half of the 20th Century , conservative and orthodox Protestants such as Bishop James Pike, Bishop Shelby Spong, Marcus Borg, Jesus Seminar members, ELCA, et al I wonder if some mainline Protestants still believe in God or have they become cultural Protestants to join with the spiritual bankrupt Catholics of Vatican II. The aforementioned ministers were the ones who dominated the headlines for so long that they gave the appearance of representing all mainline Protestantism even if this was a false impression. Many Catholics believe that absent the Fundamental types as Baptists, mainline Protestantism have evolved into a social club.
The Catholic Church is slowly excising its radical leftist elements so dominant after Vatican II. There is a widely held perception among Catholics, that mainline Protestants, starting with the Lambeth Conference of 1928 no longer ascribe to historical Christian doctrines. The mainline Protestantism of Spong , Berg, Pike, coupled with the ordination of Gays and women is the mainline Protestantism familiar to most Catholics so to state that Protestants are to the right of Catholicism is absurd.

How come I never see any of those mainline Protestants protesting at Planned Parenthood abortuaries and why did they all cave after the 1930 Lambeth conference? You need to stop smoking dope.

Those bodies began to succumb to liberal theology at the turn of the 19th Century. Read William F. Buckley's "God and Man at Yale" and you will see how things were in 1950.
