"American Catholics like what they're hearing from Pope Francis

Pope Francis said in an interview this week that the Catholic Church's emphasis needs to turn from sexual issues to the ‘freshness and fragrance of the Gospel.’ Polls show most American Catholics agree.

Pope Francis shook up the Roman Catholic world this week with his comments about abortion, contraception, and gay marriage, saying such moral and doctrinal issues should not be overemphasized at the cost of “losing the freshness and fragrance of the Gospel."

In the United States, many Catholics hailed what the pope had to say in a lengthy interview in a Jesuit publication, which may not be surprising given attitudes here seen as more liberal than official church doctrine from Rome.

• By 55-43 percent, most American Catholics say abortion should be legal in “all or most cases,” according to a Washington Post/ABC poll in July.

• Eighty-two percent of Catholics in the US say birth control is morally acceptable, Gallup found last year – not much less than the 90 percent approval among all adults polled.

• In March, a Quinnipiac University National Poll found that most Catholic voters (54-38 percent) support same-sex marriage – higher than the 47-43 percent general approval rate. "Catholic voters are leading American voters toward support for same-sex marriage," said Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.

• Also, according to the Quinnipiac Poll, most American Catholics say priests should be allowed to marry (62-30 percent), say the church’s ban on contraception should be relaxed (64-28 percent, including 68-24 percent among women), and support Present Obama's position that religious-based institutions, such as hospitals and universities, must arrange for their insurance companies to provide birth control coverage for employees (51-41 percent).

RECOMMENDED: How much do you know about the Catholic Church? Take our quiz!

“We cannot insist only on issues related to abortion, gay marriage and the use of contraceptive methods," Francis said in the article published Thursday in Jesuit journals in 16 countries. "We have to find a new balance; otherwise even the moral edifice of the church is likely to fall like a house of cards, losing the freshness and fragrance of the Gospel."

In a move no doubt intended to answer those church members and clergy – including some bishops – holding to a more traditionally conservative view, the pope on Friday spoke out on abortion.

Speaking to Catholic doctors at the Vatican, Pope Francis condemned the “throwaway culture” abortion promotes, saying,“Our response to this mentality is a ‘yes’ to life, decisive and without hesitation.”

“Every unborn child, though unjustly condemned to be aborted, has the face of the Lord, who even before his birth, and then as soon as he was born, experienced the rejection of the world,” he said.

Still, liberal Catholics in the US welcomed the pope’s message in the earlier interview...."

Unfortunately, this lame argument doesn't support the majority of Americans are against this version of health care reform. Sorry to have to be the one to tell you.

"Forty-four percent of respondents call the health-care law a bad idea while 31 percent believe it's a good idea -- virtually unchanged from July's NBC/WSJ survey.

"By a 45 percent to 23 percent margin, Americans say it will have a negative impact on the country's health-care system rather than a positive one."

But as even you must know by now, the people no longer matter. It's about Obama and the Democrats' power over us.

Oh, I don't know, I think they might actually be pretty good at tithing. It gives them that false sense of humility knowing that God is looking down on them and blessing them for their "charity". In their little pee brains, all is forgiven and they can go about screwing people as they have always done.

As I have said often before, God is not happy with their blasphemy.

I may not agree with everything he says but I do like this pope. He has been a breath of fresh air to a dying religion. The GOP could certainly take a lesson from him by showing some willingness to evolve with society instead of failing to recognize they are a dying lot.

It's 'insane' when you ignore the truth. You want to deny that President Obama defeated the GOP nominee Mitt Romney who said that he would repeal Obamacare. The Americans spoke loudly in favor of Obamacare and the GOP lost . Get over it and accept it.

These polls are based on the opinions of 1,000 people who are willing to respond to the pollster....the "idiots" who have nothing better to do. Polls are NOT representative of the people.(I would have thought you people would have learned that after the Romney campaign.)

From a religious perspective, he's closer to a radical.

Right now I just don't know what to expect from him.
