Sunday Sermon: Fish in a barrel

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.

    Yeah, but at the same time, the fish are mouthing off back at you, saying ‘Well don’t throw out the baby with the bathwater!’, and ‘The Catholic Church does so much good around the world’ – it’s like they’re just begging to be shot in the barrel!
