Out of the Frying Pan…

I read with amusement Amy’s blog about the LA Diocese’s Committee of Public Safety’s People’s Supreme Plenipotentiary Council of Task Forces for Administrative Oversight of Draft Statements of Policy for Transparency in Leadership Structure (or whatever title they have for themselves) and their struggle to hammer out some nitnoid point or other. The idea that this will be a vast improvement over what we have in place now strikes me as delightfully goofy.

The rush to democratize the Church inexorably reminds me of a comment a friend made years ago: “All of human history can be summed up in two sentences. The first is, ‘What could it hurt?’ followed sometime later by ‘How was I supposed to know?’”
