Question

What does it mean to have "Catholic tastes"?

Optional Addition for Clarity - Here is the phrase in context:

Time will swallow
Your precious time
Like magic create the future

What makes a man so fickle
Who put the daggers in those eyes
Was it to learn
Through dark days of struggle
Was it to burn
To burst all our bubbles
Thunder and rain
Well the cynical flame will it heat, stick and blister
Thunder and rain

Evangelistic brother
Should be banging a tambourine
Go wash your hands and fingers
Till your mind is clean

Was it your fate
To sleep like a normal
Time and decay
No man is immortal
Thunder and rain
Boredom and pain lit the cynical flame
Will it heat, stick, and blister?
Thunder and rain
Still try to resist the pessimist
The pessimist, no, no

And these things I find
In the back of my mind
Where time lasts forever
I get all mixed up
Think I'm all mankind

Listen Mr Pessimister Pessimister
With your Catholic tastes
Oh listen Mr Pessimister Pessimister
We do not relate
Listen Mr Pessimister, Pessimister, Pessimister
Mr Pessimister

--- "Mr. Pessimist", from Elemental by Tears for Fears

This question may be more fun without knowing the lyrics of the song in which I found the phrase.
