    Catholics are never going to permit gay marriage. Never. In terms of respect for gays, they've promoted that for years. But acceptance, it's not going to happen. Tolerance, not judgment, and not acceptance.

    Sadly, that's likely true.

    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.

    I dunna know it took them a long time to accept the Medicis as a power force in image making. It also took them a long time to accept (officially) a heliocentric universe over a geocentric universe. Ideas understanding march a lot different now a days.

    But the Catholics are largely becoming irrelevant, they are hemorrhaging members worldwide, even in their traditional strongholds. In the next couple of decades, unless there's a major turnaround, organized religion is going to be largely a thing of the past.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    The masses are always going seek out answers to life's burning questions.

    But that's not turning out to be organized religion, almost all religions, across the board, are falling apart and studies are showing that only about 30% of self-identified theists actually care about belief in gods, they're identifying being religious as living a good life, not as holding correct beliefs.

    This has been predicted for centuries. These doomsday blowhards are always proven wrong.

    They didn't have actual data to back them up like we have today. The Southern Baptists, for instance, acknowledge that they lost over 100,000 members just last year alone.
