I'm finding that I rather doubt that that's the case in America.
Michel Barnes sent a quote a little while ago that tends toward the same kind of observation:
"We don't expect the secularalists who dominate our intelligentsia ever to understand how a man rooted in orthodox Christianity could ever reconcile himself with modernity, much less establish himself on the vanguard of world history. But many years ago, when the same question was put to France's Cardinal Lustiger by a reporter, he gave the answer. "You're confusing a modern man with an American liberal," the Cardinal replied. It was a confusion that Pope John Paul II, may he rest in peace, never made."
