  1. What your polls missed of the polls is that the church is not a popular opinion government, though the questions might read that way, it is a community of believers called in an organized way to see where God is leading. That means something referred to as “discernment, prayer, scripture and reason” and not popularity. We can frame our conversations in a more sensitive less antagonistic way to build respect both in action and word from communion of believers as well as priests anchored in a knowledge of love given to us from The Lord we would be much better served than these types of polls. Faith in general is an increasing part of our communities particularly as we become more diverse and my guess is that Pope Benedict did not look at the polls on the Catholic Church to make his decisions.
