Polish Catholic Church

This article made me kind of sad.  I am Polish (though not Catholic), and I think that the Catholic Church really saved Poland.  At the same time, though, the Catholic Church is not about "progress", or most of the things that make up modern Western culture.  And, let's face it, the Catholic Church is not going to reform on the celibacy of the priesthood issue.  But is that really the problem, or is it something deeper?

I guess I think that the Catholic Church is a necessity during a certain period in a nation's history, but then, because it is not about "progress", something has to come along to take its place.  In America, that something became Protestantism.  In France, secularism.  The question is: which will Poland choose?
