Making the church more palatable to the masses.
The complaint that the Church needs to change its views on abortion, same-sex marriage and more in order to 'stay relevant' and 'stop bleeding members' gets applied uniquely to America and the west. No advocate of this kind of thinking ever looks at the polls in Russia, China, Middle Eastern or African countries and decides, 'Wow, the Church better start condemning sodomy in those places -right away- if we want to be taken seriously!' Instead the overwhelming opposition to such things is taken as a sign of a great evil that should be denounced and opposed by all right-thinking Christians (and our materialist secular-atheist brethren, who are our allies, unless they are Objectivists in which case they're wicked.)
