  •  The Church is not really taking input (2+ / 0-)

    The papers for 'surveying the flock' are out .. and it is not about asking for input ... it is all about how do we make people obey Church Teaching, particularly on matters of sexual conduct ...

    For example, one of the questions concerns 'Natural Law' .. the grounds for no artificial methods of birth control .. and quite bluntly, the question says "how do we get the laity to agree to only 'natural' forms of birth control?

    after reading most of the document, I have to say that is about making the laity obey the rules that the Church has set down, not asking for input on incorporating new scientific principles into theology... it is very sad...

    But really, asking how the Church can convince people to have more children!  This is not a step toward being responsible stewards of this earth ..
    Yes, Francis wants more emphasis on concern for the poor, but he also wants women to remain second class members of the Church, he has done nothing to stop the persecution of US nuns, he doesn't want gays getting married or having anykind of physical relationships ...

    and he not anything close to the inclusiveness of the Episcopal Church ...
    but damn he does know how to make everyone think he has new plans and new ideas .. he may have chosen the name Francis, but believe me, he is a Jesuit in the worst sense of that order

    Give your heart a real workout! Love your enemies!
