Been a Catholic my whole life and sadly this is the norm, Many Catholics listen to the teaching of the church but do not hear them or do not believe in them. The Franciscans are a great down to earth bunch of guys, but they do not help in these matters. I have heard a lot of pro life talk come from St Francis on Sundays, then in the next breath you have this guy invited in, I don't get it.
