'Civil war' in the Catholic church?

It seems that conservative cardinals- displeased by the Pope's apparently liberal and political agenda for the church- are warning that the road currently being traveled by Pope Francis will lead Catholicism to the same kind of sad, slow death currently being experienced by the "mainline" Protestant churches.

That the Faith has political implications- some of them leading to support for what are generally thought of as leftist causes- is beyond dispute by any thinking Christian. But when the salvation of souls is subordinated to the welfare of society, the Church is no longer doing its job.

And neither is any denomination.
