Subject: RE: BS: Catholic religion response to 'today'
Even among the more privileged nations, how many people are aware that the ban is being Neglected, or that they get to choose, or follow their conscience, or however it's phrased? This is the first I've heard of it (though I'm not up on the latest rulings so that doesn't mean much).

But is it generally known about? The powerful within the Vatican agreeing among themselves to turn a blind eye, but keeping this fact quiet, is rather like harbouring secrets from their flock. I honestly don't know how widespread this knowledge is, or how that sort of thing works, so it's a genuine question.

I haven't heard of it here (one of the larger Irish cities) but as it doesn't affect me personally, it's not on my immediate radar screen. So what's the story with announcing it? Or don't they?
