But then again, Kathy Shaidle makes so much of what I have to say superfluous

If I had any confidence at all that the gay community was not even more intensely interested in obfuscation, denial and cover up than the bishops, I would stop making such a loud clamor. But the fact is, I don’t and the gay community gives me zero reason to have any (with the exception of one honest letter writer to Andrew Sullivan). Most of the voices out there are simply pretending this has nothing to do with homosexuality or, worse still, using the crisis (as Sullivan is) to try to get the Church to abandon the Tradition in favor of the Zeitgeist.
