21. Even if that happened . . .

I doubt the friars would be intimidated. I seem to recall that they spoke out in support of the nuns who were being chastised by the Vatican recently. I think they have more moral authority than the bishops or the Vatican these days. And there are probably very few, if any, Franciscans in the heirarchy of the Church. There are a good number of parishes, however, that would probably close if not for the efforts ordained Franciscan priests who have taken them over as their pastors. The Franciscans are cool people.
