About the only divergence you'll find from standard left-wing dogma is on the subjects of abortion and birth control. Most everything else is aligned with the article in the OP.

This isn't a criticism, by the way. It just "is what it is."
There seems to be a disconnect between how you analyze the social works done by the Church and their political bent. The US College of Cardinals is only a shade to the left of Joseph Stalin, who was a noted conservative

Every election cycle brings out the lecture from the pulpit regarding the sanctity of life and how the membership should vote straight Republican ticket. It is funny to listen to all the twists, turns, and gyrations the priests go through to arrive at straight ticket without ever saying "Republican."

Might as well celebrate, it's the only life you get.

Or at least I hope so. One of 'em will be enough for me.
