Pope Francis moves away from dogma, while US Bishops focus on gays and abortion: Will there be a Catholic schism?

_____________

Is there a theological chasm opening between: 1) the economic-equality message of Pope Francis; and 2) the continued manic obsession of U.S. Bishops and Catholic lay leaders with gay rights and women’s reproductive rights?

It’s not really an issue of the ‘official’ positions of the Catholic Church having changed — they haven’t. Instead, we used to have an American Catholic leadership, and a Papacy, working in tandem to keep the church focused liked a laser-beam on hard-right social conservatism. Economic issues were a footnote.

Now we have a relatively new pope who has expressed the heretical (to conservatives) notion that unfettered capitalism is not a guarantor of freedom, prosperity, or human dignity. He’s even suggested economic inequality is a more important concern for the church, and humanity, than condemning gay people or women who use contraception.  And as a result, far right Catholic activists and social conservatives, including Bill Donohue of the Catholic League, are freaking out.

So what happens now?
