I like the church and it is active and does good stuff but there doesn't seem to be any pol-involvement.
Hi Antonio: I am also RC. For 5 years we protested at the U.S. Catholic Bishop's conference. Go back to the home page and check out our protests from 2000 thru to 2005 in our archives. We did some fabulous stuff. We also protested at the Vatican in 2001 and again in 2006. You'll find a lot of excellent information on the Catholic pages. I particularly think that 2005 & 2006 were significant in the strategies we took.
Currently Soulforce is not focusing as much on the denominations, but building more networking with other organizations such as the Right to Marry folks, as well as BeyondExGay folks.
