The Catholic Church has always opposed birth control. Yet, as J.F. Kelly, Jr. points out “about 98 percent of sexually active Catholics have used contraceptives.” Kelly goes on to say that “89 percent of Catholics said that contraception was morally acceptable or not a moral issue at all.” Kelly says further that the Pope should clarify the church’s position on various matters including contraception. In view of those statistics, in spite of what the church has always said, what makes Kelly believe that Catholics will be swayed by what Pope Francis has to say?
