But still, that’s just the “presenting symptom”

The root of this cancer is a) a culture of contempt for orthodoxy and chastity in a significant subculture in the priesthood and b) the bishops who permit and even participate in that. Who guards the guardians? If you expect us to trust you, gentlemen, while you leave that unaddressed and allow men like Mahony to er, be less than forthcoming with the truth to the cameras, you’re nuts. And, of course, you invite a far more painful cross from our Our Lord, who hears the cry of the widow and the orphan. I say again, do you not fear God? Address the root, not just the tip of the branch.
