Subject: RE: BS: Catholic religion response to 'today'
...why isn't the Cat'lic religion keeping up with "the times"...

Because one of its strongest beliefs is that the more things change the more they stay the same and the more important it is to remain faithful to (and apply) an ancient and designed-to-be-eternally- applicable "good"-- and to stand against it's being reinterpreted to fit temporary human ideas of its meaning.

The thought is that the faith is to be a bulwark IN those changing times, and to do that it must not be changed BY them. But since its stewards are mere humans, they (we) manage to frequently screw that up.
