We should be.
You have should the next we'll let women become priests and and overwhelming majority of those polled said.
Yes there for a 69%.
Against 28% but you know as a small smattering that it did they don't know it it it doesn't matter to them.
Again is this isn't an issue that the church has not been able to make its positions on certain things -- really -- -- -- -- -- -- Well I think it's a foundational issue about -- -- I think that.
He did you think you can ask people their opinion on things.
