    How was Martini such a liberal? Because he considered the selective use of condoms for married couples in case one of the married partners had AIDS? He also said that the Catholic Church should not promote the use of condoms. The left seems desperate to try to split the Catholic Church but Martini's suggestions about the Church being more forthcoming about pedophile priests is rather a conservative idea. He would have restructured the Church's organization but that could be considered conservative also. Left wingers try to twist logic into a pretzel with some of Martini's statements but Martini never ever advocated abortion..

    Most of those guys are about dead when they get the position anyway. Maybe they could make an exception.
