Well, it isn't a popularity contest. The teachings of the Church are the teachings and they aren't going to change. If a religion can change its dogma, then what exactly is the point of it? Not saying I wouldn't like to see them adapt, but I'm not really expecting them to and not surprised that they won't
What can change, although may not necessarily change under Francis, are traditions (like when we ditched the no meat on Fridays thing). Things that are symbolic.

But antiquated & backwards stances towards just about everything important these days needs to change. Adapt or die. Or they risk becoming an afterthought in some ares of the world already trending away from high religiosity.
