Website Review: Elephants in the Living Room

A review based on: http://elephantsinthelivingroom.com/

Description

Elephants in the Living Room is an organization of priests of the Archdiocese of Detroit who seek "renewal" of the Church of Detroit.

The first meeting of the organization was held in 2003. They have about 500 members, most of whom are clerics but include local religious and laity. Their educational forum speaker's list reads like a "Who's Who" of dissenters, including such notables as Fr. Richard McBrien and Sr. Joan Chittister. Members also hold membership and leadership roles in other organizations, such as: Call to Action, Catholic Caucus, Catholics for the Common Good, Detroit Catholic Pastoral Alliance, Pax Christi and Voice of the Faithful.

This is definitely a site to avoid unless you enjoy listening to disgruntled dissidents dance to an increasingly obsolete tune without realizing they are the lost "elephants" wandering in the opposite direction of the main herd.
