They never quit
Notice that leaving the Church never occurs to them. They want power, not equality. Pretty hard to start from scratch.

Same here. The media would have used it as an excuse to trash us twice as hard and demand that an American pope act like a Democrat politician.

The institution isn't progressive, that's why they keep doing the advocacy journalism.

I hate to be appearing to agree with Bob, but note what he is.

And here.

As to the progressives that are asking for female ordination (female deacons is historical, that's not what they are interested in) they are just like "Catholics for Choice" they are not actual Catholics and they get a lot of liberal foundation money.

This is what you need on your resume to be CNN's top business reporter:

He is an Ismaili Muslim of Indian descent[1] and earned a degree in religious studies[2] from Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario in 1994.[3] During his time at Queen's he made news by organizing protests against Preston Manning and Canada's Reform Party.

That's blatant political bias. And this guy is paraded around as objective.

You "media bias" people are a hoot. You don't want objective media. You want media that only publishes news and opinion that you agree with. What a bunch of hypocritical bozos.

I want CNN to admit that it is leftist, like MSNBC.

They won't do that because there are still sheep that have not had a red pill moment.

From an ethical standpoint, yes.

If Fox was hiring people known to be College Republicans and presenting them off as objective journalists, MMFA would give unceasing grief.

Every time we put up a story that upsets you by daring to poke at your leftist masters.

Were I a reporter paid to cover objectively, I would not vote.

I'm not calling for legislation, but if you want to be seen as objective then there should at the least be something Hatch Act like in a code of ethics, and an insistence on not voting.

Gen. George Marshall did not vote until he exited the Army.

IMO, all public employees should follow his standard.
