CWN Editor's Note: Cardinal Walter Brandmüller has suggested that corruption in the Catholic clergy has reached a level last seen in the 11th century, when St. Peter Damian denounced homosexual influence and the demands of lay Catholics eventually triggered the “Gregorian reforms.” Cardinal Brandmüller—one of the “dubia” cardinals—said that the corruption is due to “an almost epidemic” spread of homosexual influence.

    Higly agree. It s not getting betteras the Pope is too proud to admit his failures. His pride will cost the Church many souls. There is a war going on in the for the soul of the Church. Jesus and his Church will win but it will be a hard fought battle. St Michael protect us from the homosexuality that eats at the Church priests at all levels.
