Australia's Catholic church bans pop songs at funerals

But who cares, really?

Far more serious breaches of canon law and Catholic doctrine are routinely carried out in churches around the world, and nothing ever happens. So many of these edicts are just a dead letter.

Look Catholic leaders, if you want the faithful to take your leadership a little more seriously, start by enforcing the rules you already have. Among them, refusing communion to grave sinners, like politicians who vote for abortion.

Then maybe people will actually FOLLOW the rules on pop songs at church.

Not that I'm calling for disobedience. I'm just saying that you can't command obedience if you don't insist on it.
