Greeley says that young, conservative priests are “out of touch” with the laity.
First off, given the recent scandals, I don’t think priests should be touching laity at all.
Secondly, most of the laity I associate with want more conservative priests and think Andrew Greeley’s out of touch with reality.
Thirdly, why should that *matter*? Isn’t it far more important to be “in touch with” God’s Will than the laitys?
