The church gave up its credibility for Lent.
—Maureen Dowd, Should There Be an Inquisition for the Pope?
Thank you, Maureen Dowd, for your outrage and for pounding this home. I am so tired of Catholics putting themselves in the position of “discriminated against” because it’s only “a few” priests and “other religions” do it and just aren’t picked on as much.
Get a grip. The people have the power here and refuse to use it. Demand change. Stop writing checks to this corrupt, arrogant institution. This kind of leadership is not moral, religious, spiritual, Christ-like or legal.
I’m pretty confident your God will understand.
