Abp. Chaput Names the Evil

It took a while for the Archbishop of Philadelphia to speak on the matter.  But he named the name, to his eternal credit.

...Many bishops are frustrated with Rome “for its unwillingness to acknowledge the real nature and scope of the abuse problem,” Chaput said in a meeting with seminarians in Ohio. “Not naming the real problem for what it is, a pattern of predatory homosexuality and a failure to weed that out from Church life, is an act of self-delusion.”

“Clerical privilege is not the problem,” the archbishop insisted. “Clericalism may be a factor in the sexual abuse of minors, but no parent I know – and I hear from a lot of them – sees that as the main issue.”...

Under "failure to weed out" come such offenses as allowing James Martin, SJ and Bryan Massingale to push their homosexualist propaganda which works toward erasing the line between good and evil.

Don't expect +Chaput to get a red hat while Francis is Pope.  More likely he'll suffer 'white martyrdom', or worse.
