    Catholic Bishops has taken a hard-right turn because a lot of these guys were appointed by Popes John Paul II and Benedict XV. I've thought for a long time that if the Catholic Church in the US ever split it would be due to Catholic liberals walking away from the conservatives who have been running the US Catholic Church for quite a few years.  Now, however, I'm wondering if the conservatives will be the ones who leave and start their own church that will be closer to the Protestant evangelicals. It seems as though Pope Francis I has the kind of leadership that could take the Church back to what John XXIII and the more liberal theologians envisioned back in the 1960s with Second Vatican Council.  I would dearly love to know how Francis I got voted in! It tells me that there might be a lot more liberals in the ranks of the Cardinals than I ever thought there were.

    PS Quick reminder that the Pope speaks infallibly ONLY in matters of faith or morals.  That happens very rarely.  What he's been speaking so wonderfully lately is simply in the line of a sermon---not an infallible statement.
