    and company won't listen to him anymore than he will listen to them. The Church ought to be a moral force in the world but I don't think his German heritage makes him any more or less sensitive to anything.  He knows he's right and has the mantle of infallibility (which is a whole dairy in itself) to wave like a red cape in front of any bull that comes along.

    I am Catholic, born and bred.  After 17 years of Catholic education and many years of teaching in Catholic schools I continue to believe that the Church can and should be a force for good in the world.  That it doesn't always live up to my expectations has sometimes caused me to give up, but mostly, it makes me work harder to realize that goal.  I hope I use the best of my faith to show my students how the example of Jesus is relevant and living in them.  It is no different than my belief that they can bring our country back to the ideals that have been trashed by politicians and corporate thugs.  I may be tilting at windmills, but I am too old to change now.
