Define "Neo-Con"

I missed that, good point. 

Also, I think we should keep the designation "neo-conservative" separate from the designation "neo-Catholic".  I doubt many neo-Catholics support abortion or fag "marriage".

By the way, if you meant "what is a Neo-Catholic", then a Neo-Cath is a Catholic that suffers from false obedience and the heresy that a Pope or Council is infallible in everything they say or do.  It was a term that was desperately needed.

Let me give you an example.  A liberal "Catholic" will support altar girls because they oppose the idea that men should have authority over women, and therefore see it as furthering their agenda.  A neo-Catholic supports altar girls because the Pope reversed himself and said it is allowed, therefore it has to be "right".  It is hard to call the second group "liberal", even though they support "liberal" things in the Church.  So we differentiate them from heretics by calling them Neo-Catholics.
