After almost two years of detailed study, several members of the National Review Board have concluded that the US bishops aren't acting decisively to end the sex-abuse scandal.
Oh, wait; there's even more. Some Board members feel that the bishops are more interesting in covering up than in pursuing reform. Wow.
We eagerly await the National Review Board's conclusion on the question of whether the sky is blue. But that might take more study.

The National Review board is now and always has been a side-tracking tactic. It was set up to deflect attention from the fact that the offending bishops continue business as usual including ordaining perverts to the priesthood and have no intention of doing otherwise. The review board is the most deluded of all. Some of them actually seem to think they have some authority over the bishops. It is the board that allows the mess to continue as it gives the impression something is being done.

In all fairness to the weak of heart, which one of us mice would really like to try to put the bell around ANY of these cats' necks??? Defining the problem is not too difficult (although it really does take a certain amount of courage). Doing something abuut it in a spiritually militant way, without impaling oneself on one's own pride and impurity, well, that's quite a different matter.
