NPR's Noah Adams speaks with Sister Christine Schenk, director of the progressive Catholic group FutureChurch, about how her group is reacting to the election of Cardinal Ratzinger as pope. Ratzinger was known for his strict adherence to traditional Catholic positions on social issues, and for purging so-called "liberation theology" from the church.
