The Good, the Bad, and Ugly

Accompanied by the weird whistly music from Clint Eastwood spaghetti westerns, Domenico Bettinelli takes a look at Cdl. Law’s deposition (Score so far: Law seems forthright; Attorney questioning Law seems stunningly clueless); Voice of the Faithful (his take is similar to mine); and the revolting news that yet another death (this time due to booze and cars) appears to be stinking up the Church’s closet. And just to make it extra depressing, everybody’s favorite dolt of a bishop, John “I didn’t notice it was odd when Paul Shanley publicly preached the glories of Man Boy Love” McCormack is the man who appears to have labored to hush it all up if possible. Bp McCormack, why are you still bishop? What does it take for you to have the decency to resign and go work for the rest of your life tending your betters’ wounds at the Home for the Dying in Calcutta?
