Pope tells US Churches to "quit playing the victim."

What a smackdown!!!

https://www.nbcnews.com/news/religion/pope-francis-talks-tough-u-s-bishops-says-credibility-church-n954311

Pope Francis delivered a blunt message Thursday to his American bishops — stop “playing the victim or the scold” and do something about the “culture of abuse” that has resulted in a crisis of credibility for the U.S. Roman Catholic Church.

Francis’ letter, which was dated Tuesday, was delivered as the bishops were at a weeklong spiritual retreat at the Mundelein Seminary north of Chicago.


This is really an asskicking directed at Nolan.

1. I have a difficult time cheering this man.

Tho he is no Ratzinger.

This is a problem everywhere Catholicism thrives.

2. Is the CEO passing the buck here?

"Strongly worded letters".

His Holiness, you're the boss. Prosecute and fire those that have committed crimes.


What would Jesus have done? An eight page letter? C'mon.
