On the Pope

What with the pope's anniversary and his failing health, there have been quite a few news spots on the pontiff. Many of them have an aspect that surprises me: they comment on how conservative he is. Perhaps a Catholic would be better fit to comment on this, but: isn't JPII one of the more liberal among the higher-ups this century? Hasn't he been widely censured by traditionalists around the world for his liberal stances? I see where the news get their idea -- "he doesn't support civil unions? damn conservative." -- but he seems quite liberal to me, for a leader in the Roman Catholic Church. Am I wrong?
