A CHURCH DIVIDED - The Vatican versus American Catholics

By Terrance Sweeney

Priests are leaving the Church in droves; marrying publicly, without dispensation from Rome; and continuing to practice their ministry despite canon laws forbidding it.

In increasing numbers Catholics are supporting the idea that women should allowed to join the priesthood.

A Church Divided investigates these issues from a variety of perspectives. A recent poll conducted by Sweeney shows that both the laity and America’s bishops are rebelling against the rules. The complete results of Sweeney's poll, which the Vatican attempted to suppress, are published here for the first time.
