Catholic laity are right to demand honesty from the hierarchy. But let them also be honest with themselves and others about why they remain in the church.
Tens of thousands of Catholic women are doing what so few official church ‘leaders’ have done as this abuse crisis spins out of control.
Ultimately, the core of the issue here is not about sex. Not substantially. It is about a degraded Vatican culture that supports men like Theodore McCarrick.
Since his election, Pope Francis has done everything within his power to soften and subvert the church’s teaching concerning human sexuality. He also packed the College of Cardinals with the Lavender Mafia.
Far too many church leaders, including some still in positions of authority, saw a greater ‘sin’ in public scandal than in the violation of young children.

As Ireland nears a summer referendum on whether to change a constitutional provision ensuring unborn children’s right to life, public demonstrations have broken out.
The once-eminent Jesuit university has approved a queer-only campus residence. Georgetown officials crow this ‘is in keeping with our Catholic and Jesuit values.’
Most Americans’ knowledge of Our Lady of Guadalupe probably extends to recognizing the famous image of Mary, often found in the homes and businesses of many Mexican-Americans.
Why should courts take religious freedom more seriously, given that Notre Dame administrators have effectively admitted their conscience claims were unserious?
At a time when many Catholics are troubled by the ideas of a next-generation pope with a Twitter account, these questions and arguments are of extraordinary importance.
