From Fr James Tucker
I see all these opinion polls that tell me a majority of American [Roman] Catholics disagree with Church teaching on this, that, or the other. You know what role public opinion plays in determining truth? Absolutely none.

I looked in my bible to see whether it said anything about public opinion polls, and I only found one instance of an opinion poll being taken. Pontius Pilate asked the people what should be done with Jesus, and the majority opinion was, "Crucify Him, give us Barabbas, we have no king but Cæsar."

Public opinion is fine in politics, but it stinks in religion.
