Early on in his papacy, Pope Francis drew criticism with remarks that the Catholic Church had become obsessed with abortion, gay marriage and contraception, and that the Church had been guilty of putting dogma before love.
Recently, the Pope issued a survey to Catholics worldwide to get a “sense of the faithful” concerning the Church’s teachings on family-related issues. The overall results in America remain to be seen, but bishops in Switzerland and Germany have said that the results suggest that most Catholics find the Church’s teachings surrounding sex to be outdated and unrealistic.
