"Surveys in the Dumpster" by Ken Briggs/U.S. Bishops Response to Pope Francis' Call for Consultation with Catholics Worldwide on Birth Control, Divorce/other hot button issues

NCR's admirable reporting startlingly concludes that roughly two-thirds of U.S. bishops haven't broadly sought opinions from lay Catholics on family-related issues prior to the Synod on that subject later this year. The Vatican had promoted the idea by preparing a survey for that purpose, but, as NCR found, most didn't follow through
Why not if it had Rome's endorsement?
Reasons vary, of course, but the question might as well be, why should they?...

Mary Mother of Jesus Inclusive Catholic Community responded, did you or your parish?
