“Those who covered this up are guilty. Even some bishops who covered this up,” he said. “It is a terrible thing.”



I realise we have more or less established that this man does not know what a logical contradiction is. That he feels nothing is amiss in saying one thing one day and its opposite the next. Or in saying one thing one day and doing its opposite the next.

But seriously...

Those who covered this up are guilty. Even some bishops who covered this up,” he said. “It is a terrible thing.”

Is it just that he doesn't know that the world is writing down and comparing every single thing he says and does? Do he and his friends really think we aren't out here keeping track?

Or are they simply so drunk on power that they just do not care?

"Danneels advised the young man not to “make a lot of noise” about the abuse he endured from his uncle bishop because Vangheluwe was scheduled to retire in a year anyway. “It would be better that you wait..."

He could begin with Cardinal Timothy Dolan during his time in Milwaukee.

It's always safe to speak in general terms without mentioning names. It sounds good but does and risks nothing. Until the guilty are named (i.e. Daneels, etc.) it's meaningless to speak in high ideals. The Church remains unreformed, even as she speaks in the terms of reform, and - to use Pope Benedict's term - the "filth" in the Church remains.

Hilary, I've enjoyed your writing on Lifesitenews for a long time now. And now I've found your blog! It is terrific! Thank you for being honest, rather than telling people what they want to hear! So refreshing in this era of lukewarm Catholics. God bless you!

Glad you found your way here, Anon.

Please see the commbox rules, posted to the sidebar to the left (scroll down a bit), particularly the bit about leaving a real or plausible-sounding name.
