These laity don’t seem particularly powerless. My money is on them getting what they want–AmChurch tapioca–fairly soon. How come it’s only orthodox laity who are supposed to be powerless? By the way, Amy has some rather sensible remarks on the pastoral ineptitude that appears to be on display here. Why is it orthodox Catholics so [Read More...]

I’m highly suspicous of the “recovered memory” cottage industry I know of people who have been used like marionettes by shrinks who were working out their own private agendas and grudges by “helping” people remember stuff that never happened. [Read more...]

From our “The Bishops Reflect the Culture” File Diogenes notes the weird ambiguities of the Massachusetts AG report on the Situation. It’s a report full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
