It's not often that your Uncle Di has occasion to report the news from Park City, Utah. So what are the odds that when a priest there criticizes the Vatican for its handling of the sex-abuse problem, he just happens to be the same Father Bob Bussen who, some months back, was blaming the Vatican for its attitude toward homosexuality?
Pure coincidence, I'm sure. The two issues-- repeat after me-- are entirely unrelated.

A smaller Church might not be a bad idea...

Uncle Di, what's the chance that we might ever know what percentage of ordained and "practicing" priests are, like "Father Bob", ticking time bombs in our midst, awaiting the time to explode? Wasn't it the Miami Diocese that was said to have such a widespread problem with homosexual priests that if they were removed from the ministry, 70% of the parishes would be without a pastor?
