You do know one can be both Catholic and liberal?  One is a religion, the other is a political identification that is fairly widely subjective.  Then of course there's Catholic and Mel Gibson/Tom Monaghan Catholic, which is a whole other story.  ;D

I am both Catholic and liberal.  I think around here Catholic and conservative tends to get lumped together.  I meant to differentiate between the conservative mainstream and the liberal minority.

The Catholic relationship with God has little to do with man-made dogma or declarations, that, given the occurance of Vatican II, are subject to change.  I understand what you are saying, though, but not agreeing with the particular stance of an entity when it comes to a specific issue shouldn't preclude you from still being a part of that entity (i.e., pro-choice Republicans, pro-death penalty Democrats).

I like McDonald's, but I'm not a big fan of the Filet 'O Fish. 



I don't think you can compare the two.  You can be catholic and not agree with the position of women in the church or the celibacy of priest (as these things can change in time)  however when it comes to the identity of a catholic one must believe in the holy catholic AND apolostolic church... as well as the sanctity of ALL life.  in other words, there are certain requisites for calling onesself catholic.  otherwords, wouldn't one just be a monothiestic dietist?  or perhaps a Christian but not a Catholic?
