A survey of ordinary believers' views on sexual ethics signals a potentially ground-breaking change of emphasis for the Roman Catholic Church.

Roman Catholics have been more used to receiving guidance from the Vatican than giving it.

But with Pope Francis has come a growing sense that he intends fundamental change in the way his huge Church is run - and that he wants to include "ordinary" Catholics in it.

His unprecedented exercise in consultation - the survey sent to all Catholic bishops with instructions to consult as widely as possible - is a powerful further sign of reform in the old top-down way of governing the Church.

The survey's 39 questions deal with sensitive subjects - contraception, gay marriage, sex outside marriage, and whether divorced and remarried people should be allowed Holy Communion.
Diverging from doctrine

The Roman Catholic Church in England and Wales was the first in the world to put the survey online, and is encouraging all Catholics to complete it by the deadline on 20 December.

Their responses are likely to confirm what bishops already know - that the behaviour of Catholics, including the roughly one third who go regularly to church, is diverging dramatically from the model of Catholic practice set out by the Church.
Continue reading the main story
Survey questions

* Is the idea of the natural law in the union between a man and a woman commonly accepted as such by the baptized in general?
* What questions do divorced and remarried people pose to the Church concerning the Sacraments of the Eucharist and of Reconciliation?
* Are [Christians today] aware of how morally to evaluate the different methods of family planning?
* How successful have you been in proposing a manner of praying within the family which can withstand life's complexities and today's culture?

Examples taken from the survey on the family by the Catholic Church in England and Wales

But rather than criticise, Pope Francis is convinced that the Church needs to understand - and his survey is part of that effort.

A few weeks ago, the Pope criticised the Roman Catholic Church for being too focused on enforcing the rules for human behaviour based on its traditional beliefs.

He called it being locked up in "small things and small-minded rules", and an obsession with "the transmission of a disjointed multitude of doctrines".

Atheism is never scientific. Atheism is the lack of an "ism", nothing more. You should really stop mumbling.

There is an "ism" in being an atheist? Where? Surely someone can see some small bit of it that could actually be pointed out, don't you think? So can you point out any bit of this "ism " that you claim?

American Atheists fights to protect the absolute separation of religion from government and raise the profile of atheism in the public discourse.

Since 1963, American Atheists has been taking the principled and uncompromising position that our government should give no special treatment or preference to religious belief. Through lawsuits, innovative public relations campaigns, and education, we are working to normalize atheism and allow more and more people to set aside religious belief and superstition.

What sort of ism is complete without suing govts?
Or asking for 'gifts'?

American Atheists has filed suit against the IRS to challenge the special treatment given to churches in the Tax Code and we need your help. Gifts to our $100,000 Fair Taxation Fund will be doubled!
