I’m sure you’ll be relieved to hear that the pope won’t be “intimidated” by setbacks to the Catholic Church such as the sex abuse scandal in Wisconsin (which the then-Cardinal Ratzinger was apparently informed about while it was happening).
Nice to see he’s got his priorities straight: church first, everything else second. I wonder if that attitude is the reason some preachers stay in their jobs when they no longer believe.
I’m sure I could go off on a rip-roaring rant about the evils of what’s been going on lately (and not so lately) with the Catholic Church, but somehow it seems almost unsporting — like shooting fish in a barrel. Or piling on in a giant crowd of people shooting fish in a barrel. Sometimes it’s better to just point to something and let it speak for itself.
