“Jesus did not don gold cloaks”: the Future of the Papacy

“Jesus did not don gold cloaks”: the Future of the Papacy

Clericalism and its companion sins, insularity and arrogance, have long plagued the Catholic Church. Its most grievous manifestation in our time is the clergy sex abuse scandal and its decades-long cover-up by bishops, chancery officials, and the Vatican. To that toll can be added financial malfeasance, insistence on the second-class status of women in the Church, attempted silencing of legitimate theological expressions, indifference to the rights of lay people, and more.” By Donna B. Doucette, Voice of the Faithful Executive Director, Commentary on Patheos.com
