  •  Well, there's somewhat "reformed" (none)
    Catholic congregations, too.  I know people who happen to be such members, and they uniformly strike me as extremely respectful folks when it comes to acceptance of various belief systems, private decisions such as birth control, abortion procedures, etc.  Perhaps my experience is skewed, but the very nature of their searching out a more lenient tone in a shared community with whom they worship probably supports my limited observations as being not entirely unreasonable.

    In general, I fully support your sentiment - even those folks just mentioned tend to be somewhat subdued in their "protest" (for lack of a better word) of the undying heirarchy and strict dogma, because they apparently have nothing to prove in that regard.

    •  skewed and subdued (none)
      My view of church reform may be skewed too, because I AM a church reformer, and am part of a radical catholic congregation.
      Is our approach "subdued?"
      We are welcoming to the gay community, delegate a lot of lay ministry, including lay preaching (not permitted by the Church) and some of us have taken it even further. Recently, I attended a mass con-celebrated by a woman and a married priest, risking excommunication.
