Why're You So Rough On 'Em, Caveman?
You wanted to know, so I'll tell

Many have been asking me over the past few months as to why I'm so tough on the USCCB. OK, fair enough.

As I've pointed out in the past, in 2002 report, the Dallas Morning News has a bishop by bishop break-down of who knew of (and did nothing) or protected pedophliac or pederast "priests".

Guess what... most Catholic bishops in the United States did exactly that.

And yes, I fully acknowledge that it was a very small minority of priests that engaged in this scandalous and perverted behavior, but folks... it was a majority of our bishops that not only allowed this to happen, in many cases, they allowed it to flourish.

It's to those individuals who I hold accountable for turning the words "Catholic Priest" into a punch line.

Thankfully, Angell (our former auxiliary) and Mulvee (our former ordinary) retired, and our present ordinary, Tobin, is NOT on the list.

I completely agree with you.

It's difficult enough to be a Catholic in this day and age, what with "progressives", liberals, and secular humanists running around hysterically whining about any display of religion.

But the actions of these priests and the Bishops was disgraceful. And that's the G-rated version of what I want to say. And all they did was give those who hate Catholicism more ammo with which to shoot us.

And no Dioceses in Kansas or Nebraska!

Sadly, Fiorenza is part of the problem. Fortunately he retired.

But it's good information to have for future postings.
