Your Sunday Screed

I respect faith; I believe that faith guides and sustains some of what is good in the world.

I believe that the Roman Catholic Church, as presently constituted, ought to be dismantled and rebuilt to become Christian again. The establishment Church has sustained and thereby condoned too many crimes against the vulnerable to continue to be trusted with the vital mission of faith and respect for every aspect of the human condition.

The list is long and repellent and growing. The institution is a privileged, insulated gerontocracy. It is reactionary, misogynistic, and homophobic.
I hope that it goes bankrupt and falls under the weight of its own hypocrisy. I think that it is incapable of reforming itself. I think that a bunch of old, chaste guys exercising power on the world stage is worse than laughable. It’s close to catastrophic.
