the flaw in Anderson's logic
By Diogenes ( articles ) | Apr 23, 2010
In his lawsuit blaming the Vatican for abuse in Milwaukee, Jeffrey Anderson argues that the Holy See carefully controls every aspect of Catholic life, right down to the parish level. The Vatican, he claims, implicitly approves of everything that is done by a bishop, pastor, or priest.
It won't wash. You can't possibly prove that the Vatican approved of everything that was happening in Milwaukee at the time in question. At that time, Rembert Weakland was Archbishop of Milwaukee.
I rest my case.
