    in the Catholic Church, our beliefs are pretty well summed up with the Nicene Creed. Not a peep about gays, or abortion.
    And the first question in the old Baltimore Catechism, the one that young Catholics learned from 1897 to the time of the Vatican II, is who made you? God made me. And question #2 is "Why did God make you?" God made me to show forth His goodness and share with Him everlasting happiness in heaven.
    The rest of it was how to be obtain heaven, Spiritual and Corporal Works of Mercy, the 7 precepts of the Church, etc
    Not a peep about gays or abortion or any other pelvic issue near and dear to the Right Wing.
    So good for Pope Francis in starting a dialogue with disenchanted Catholics and other believers and even non believers.

    What do we want? Universal health care! When do we want it? Now!
