Doing its best to loosen rivets at key junctural points of orthodoxy, U.S. Catholic passes on advice addressed to the Pope by thirteen hostile women, the least rancorous of whom is Joan Chittister:
We will all come to [truth] slowly, with more or less reluctance, with more or less insight into the meaning of it for us in the here and now because people develop at different rates as a result of different experiences. I want to tell you that in periods such as these, we may all stand at different points on this continuum of growth and development.
Got that? It's not that Pope Benedict is necessarily evil. He's just a slow learner.
