Gold Within the Mud: new post at EP February 22, 2019

From my new post at Ethika Politika:

As much as I was moved by Fr. Tolton’s story, I couldn’t help but leave the play with a sense of disgust. “How could the Church have been so racist…so evil?” While the Church’s hierarchy has done much to overcome its racist past, it remains mired with other vices and evils. Most recently, I’ve been trying to understand how a hierarchy which attempts to cover up the sexual abuse of minors can claim to be the guarantors of the Church’s call to be “the sacrament of salvation” to humankind.

Read more about how the life of SoG Augustus Tolton has helped me to make sense of the current clergy sex abuse crisis.
