During all the prattle on TV over the Pope, I heard someone ask if the new Pope would allow priests to marry or allow female priests.
Even though I'm not Catholic, I feel very confident in saying
No, there will be no female priests.
No, there will be no acceptance of birth control.
No, there will be no acceptance of abortion.
No, there will be no same-sex marriages.
And on, and on.Look - these things are part of what makes one a Catholic. All organized religions have tenets that make them what they are. And get used to the fact that the Church isn't going to change for you.
If you feel that there are parts of your Church that you cannot reconcile yourself to, stop the hypocritical acting and breast-beating and Leave That Religion!
Organized religions do not offer cafeteria-style belief - you accept all of it as it is or you find another faith that suits you.
