Via Protect the Pope, the Bishop of Menevia has told the Tablet:

Conservatism has had its day. It doesn’t work. Despite all Benedict’s efforts, the Church is losing its place in society – yet the search for God and meaning remain high.. It’s time to reopen the doors and windows for a new blowing of the Spirit, a freedom of speech to search for ways ahead that will address key issues like remarriage after divorce; re-examining ethical issues…

Reminds me of that great bit in the gospels where Jesus told the Apostles to change His teachings whenever they felt the Church was “losing its place in society.” Something about making sure the world really likes you, and that you fit in and stuff.
