NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — In his latest move, Pope Francis has ordered bishops to do some survey work to find out what the faithful really think about the church’s teachings on marriage and family.
As CBS 2’s John Slattery reported, in what is considered a radical move, the pope wants to find out what rank-and-file Roman Catholics think.
“You know, for young people, saying the Catholic Church doesn’t take polls – well, guess what? We take polls now,” said the Rev. James Martin, a Vatican watcher and contributor to America Magazine.
