So true. Complacency, denial and acceptance of the intolerable seem to be the norm. We need more mugwumps and less kowtow’ing sycophants. We need a society that works for everyone, not just advertisers and profiteers. We need people to think for themselves. We need it to be illegal for donors to ask politicians to sign voting pledges.
As for the Catholic church, I recently read the opinion of a Cardinal that helped me understand the Catholic’s church fumbling and permissiveness. Get this. He blamed women and feminists for pedophilia by priests. He argued that women infect the churches, ruin and distract the priests and female altar girls drive away the boys. Take the masculine out of the church. Huh? It’s baffling. Pedophiles need unquestioned access to children and authority over them. Of course they would be drawn to professions that allow them to fulfill their desires and forgive their sins. Blame women? Please. Who could take that seriously? That’s like blaming the tree for bearing the apple that enticed the worm to move right in. A worm is a worm, and you don’t need to look farther for a reason.
