afterthought

By Fr. Wilson (articles ) | Jun 05, 2003

Diogenes, ole' palomine, I agree with you here:

"And this makes sense. In spite of our extreme exasperation in face of child abuse, we really don't want a state that imprisons our fellow citizens on the grounds of incompetence, cowardice, or sloth."

But it occurs to me that we have an even more serious problem than the state's reaction: do we want a Church in which a Bishop can continue gloriously reigning even after such a scandal brought on by his incompetence, cowardice and sloth?

St Paul seems to have labored nder the impression that there were qualifications for the office.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
