    of the church that doesn't see women as equals, is against abortion in all cases and doesn't want it's congregation to use birth control?...that leftist?

      JPII some of the highest Lay offices in the church where given to women for the first time?

      just because he's not always with what you consider the left doesn't mean that he's not left on some issues, the Holy Father is left of most Americans when it comes to economic social issues, but on moral issues he is of course to the right. We Americans have a bad habit of grouping people in our terms when there are broader terms to talk about these issues.

      I'd bet that if you where to talk with many priests they would support your views on social justice. I know i got more than a few positive nods and smiles from priests who saw my obama pin.

      Now for the sake of the full story, my uncle is a priest, and i'm fairly close to said uncle. So i've been around priests my entire life, and even priest who aren't close friends of my uncle locally often know who we are.
