A woman who writes on issues religious and church stuff, says that you could have married clergy, women priests and contraception for everyone, but it would not win a single soul. Really? I think it would make outreach a lot easier because you would have some new "souls" in the pews who had walked out or never come in, based on these very issues. I am not saying change the policy or teaching, but I do suspect that a change would bring in or bring back a lot of people who are on the sidelines or attending mega non-denominal churches now. As for people leaving if there were a change, I don't know that anyone who loves the Eucharist would leave because they do not want to receive from someone.
