In a shockingly honest interview on RTE (Ireland’s NPR essentially) the Archbishop of Dublin, Diarmuid Martin, said the realtionship between church and state will never be the same again due to the Catholic Church sex scandal and the recent reports exposed “elitism, dysfunction, disconnection, and narcissism that dominated the Vatican”.
About fucking time someone on that team woke up and said something truthful. Now the rest of us (THINKING) humans know this and have been saying this for several years but this falls on deaf ears. It falls on deaf ears at your local church with members and with your own priest. My local priest has told me that I must find a way to right this in my soul after admitting in confession that I am disgraced to be associated with the church and it’s ilk. Why do I have to find a way to right this? How about you fucking idiots (paging Vatican, line 1) come out and really admit the actual problem and the SCOPE of the problem. Ask for help in solving it with local authorities and commit to your flock that you will no longer only “police yourself” and involve civilian authorities at the first mention, sniff or glance that leads to suspicions.
Let’s face it, you are no longer deemed innocent, any of you. You are all guilty until proven otherwise. Each and every priest is guilty in my mind. Guilty of the actual crime, maybe, guilty of allowing this to continue without raising your voices every single moment of evey single day…positively guilty.
