masaccio commented on the blog post The Problem Was Messaging, Not the Message, Say Catholic Bishops
I didn’t have any trouble understanding the point of view of the conservative bishops or the Pope or the conservatives in the Curia. This crew of bishops has no problem explaining how we should behave, but they don’t see that most of us don’t see them as having any moral authority in the wake of their decision to hammer on the women of faith, the nuns, for their practical moral choices.
Face it bishops, the authority that derives from a pathological patriarchy is dwindling, and will survive only in the Churchly equivalent of the Tea Party. We saw in the last election how that worked out for the confessed politicians.
