The buck stops... over there!

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles - email) | May 27, 2013

Today’s news headlines prompt a couple of quick thoughts:

When a priest was found ministering to young people, in apparent violation of a court order, there were howls in Newark for the resignation of Archbishop John Myers. Now the vicar general of the archdiocese has stepped down. Do you suppose that will satisfy the archbishop’s critics? Neither do I.

Having failed to push through a proposal allowing for the ordination of female bishops, leaders of the Church of England are gearing up for another try. There’s an implicit message here for all those who oppose the plan: We’re going to keep voting until you get this right.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
