Are you Catholic, Remali? If not, I fail to see how him not being progressive will affect you. Even if you are, it won't affect you at all if you're an American citizen. The American Catholics are considered upstarts.
As far as putting the pedophile priests in prison that's hardly up to the Church, it's up to local law enforcement. The Church did some covering up which was scandalous and inexcusable, but unfortunately there's a statute of limitations on pedophilia charges. That's why those men are still free and roaming around. The good/bad thing about it is that they won't stop their perverse acts, so hopefully somewhere down the line someone will be able to get them put away.
When it comes to 'spreading the wealth' the Catholics aren't the only ones who need to step up more. Every organized religion should, starting with the Mormons and Baptists.
