Comments: Is the Pope Still Catholic?

Benedict XVI is lambasted for being a "hardliner" and "cracking down" on wayward theologians. Then in the same article it is usually stated that he needs to do more than JPII in addressing the priest child abuse scandal. The progressives complain that the Church needs to loosen up her stance on sexual issues, but it was priests not following existing Church teaching (and their vows) that precipited the abuse scandal.
