Pope John Paul I was a short lived pope (only 33 days). There are rumours that he was assasinated.
Someone told me that he was quite liberal (as catholic popes can go), and some of his teachings/views could eventually have led the Catholic Church to support contraception.
Is there any basis to this hypothesis? Is there anything Pope John Paul I did, before or after becoming pope, which would imply contraception might be OK? Did he downplay the 'evils' of contraception?
