Delayed reaction II
By Diogenes (articles ) | Jul 21, 2004
Vienna's Cardinal Christoph Schöborn thinks the Vatican waited too long before launching an investigation of a homosexual scandal in the St. Pölten seminary.
Now keep in mind that he's talking about a scandal that became public less than two weeks ago.
I'm not disagreeing with Cardinal Schönborn. I'm merely pointing out that he shows a lot less patience than the American bishops, who are still working out those pesky details for beginning an apostolic visitation that they agreed, two years ago, should be done "without delay."

Hmmmm.... part of this visitation is inspecting seminaries..... Roger solved that one.We simply do not have any seminaries in this the largest archdiocese in the USA. No high school seminary - no college seminary. We still have our non theology theologate....for now. It sits on valuable land as did the sold off college seminary. It won't last long. How is that for a track record for his tenure

...and I'm sure, Diogenes, that the Amchurch bishops think the Vatican is acting too fast.

What a looney tune. The next thing you know these guys will be suggesting separate orthodox seminaries based upon Aquinas and the Greek Fathers, fasting, Ignatian Retreats and learning Latin and Greek. There's no telling what type of change he would bring if he ever became Pope.
