Cardinal Robert Sarah’s departure invites suspicions of a continuing purge by Pope Francis of opponents to his project.
Frédéric Martel’s book, ‘In the Closet of the Vatican: Power, Homosexuality, Hypocrisy,’ proves to be an appalling exercise in smearing the Catholic Church in order to grind a personal and theological axes.
Inadequate—and blameworthy—are expressions of sympathy for the abused that disguise the elephant in the rectory. The first responsibility is to call things by their right name.
The change is painful, but good to make us more who we truly are. I know that when this trial ends, the church will emerge closer to Christ than before.
Abuse should not be covered up, and offending priests should be dismissed from the priesthood, of course, but the church’s teaching on sexuality is not the problem.
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.
