    The Catholic doctrine doesn't change with every gallop poll the way American politics does.

    I think conservative institutions play an important role the global society, so do liberals.

    One without the other would be dangerous.
    I think the type of change is what defines a conservative or liberal but that is another discussion.

    I agree 100% with you that one without the other would be a very very dangerous place and we have seen some very bad things when only one runs a country.

    I often wonder at Luther's RAGING anti-semitism -do you think it was because he offered the Jews a way out of their predicament and they told him to get bent ? He basically stated ALL could be saved through Christ if they would accept him as their messiah -for their rebuking him he unloaded upon them .

    I didn't read the article, but I think it's pretty safe to say that every american president has represented american catholics (and american protestants, and american athiests, and american buddhists, etc) better than the pope.

    The presidents job is the represent the american people (including catholics), the Pope's isn't.
    There's no such thing as a pretty good aligator wrestler.
