Yes, it seems that many Americans don’t understand that the Church cannot change its position on many things. In the media they seemed to portray this papal election as a political campaign where the pope has issues to confront and how much change he will bring to the Church.
What many people fail to realize is that the gospel is supposed to transform you, not you tailor the gospel to your liking.
