  •  It's exceedingly conservative (9+ / 0-)

    For the most part, they're still acting like it's 1400, except they now sell indulgences via Twitter.

    I don't think they can change fast enough to save themselves, actually.  News now travels at near-light speed.  The church can barely crawl with all the baggage they're carrying.

    Changes that occur will be very slow, incremental, subject to being rescinded before returning at long last, and insufficient to convince anybody who has even half a doubt that they're all that interested in the things they say they're interested in.

    Consider the sex scandals.  It's been decades with very little change, and that's a clear cut violation of their vows and professed reason to exist.
