RC logo.jpgAccording to today’s Washington Post-ABC News poll, 62 percent of American Catholics think the Catholic church is out of touch “with the views of Catholics in America today.” That’s the same number as expressed that view back in October of 2003, in the midst of the pedophile coverup crisis. Then, 64 percent of American Catholics said that the pope should change church policies “to reflect the attitudes and lifestyles of Catholics today.” Today, however, by a margin of 50 percent to 45 percent, they think the pope “should maintain the traditional policies of the Church.” So American Catholics want to belong to an out-of-touch Church, right?
