    To say that morality is subjective is just a cop out.

    I don't think a majority do disagree.

    Maybe I just know too many "in name only" Catholics.

    That could be...there certainly are secular Jews and cultural Catholics.

    Maybe you know only American Catholics? They are much more liberal than Catholics of other nations. I was listening to S.E. Cupp today, I think, she was saying that Catholics from other countries are shown to become much less pro-life, once they live here.

    I know lots of American Catholics. They run the gamut from very doctrinaire to cafeteria Catholics.

    Not, it's not. To just take them for granted is a cop out, I'd say.

    I think he was the perfect pick. He is a truly humble man who chose to live in and apartment rather then live in a big house............He chose not to have a big car rather ride the bus.........He washed and kissed the feet of AIDS patients.......He is a special man.

    I am Catholic and I agree. It gets coverage because it's a large organization capable of doing good and harm, both with theatrics. This often makes them very visible, getting too much credit and discredit publicly.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    However, that doesn't really answer my question.

    Is the press coverage of this "event" reasonable, or do you find it intrusive and obnoxious?

    It's not like the vote for the next pope is a public vote.
    Obviously the fact that so many WERE interested indicates that maybe the one being obnoxious is...well...you...
