Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Holy Shithead

Recently, Pennsylvania passed a bill extending the age to which sexual abuse survivors could sue to the age of 50.  The argument is that it can take half a lifetime for survivors of abuse to come to terms with what happened to them and come forward.

The Catholic Diocese of Pennsylvania has attacked the Catholic lawmakers who supported the bill.  Against the law, they lobbied against the bill, too.

I doubt, sadly, that anything will come of this, but it would be nice if Francis sacked Bishop Chaput.  Then again, if he sacked all the bishops who have hidden the crimes committed by priests, he might have a clean church not have an bishops left.
