  •  And why are some people (0+ / 0-)

    so obsessed with sexual misdoings that they can't see anything else? Francis IS cleaning his own house, with a manure-shovel.  He's got a load of crap to get rid of, of all sorts, and he's taking it out by the cartload.  He's also trying to make use of what he has, even the crappy, in the way that best respects and heals all persons, not just one favored group.  I suspect that he recognizes the harm done by a corrupt, venal bishop living ostentatiously in the face of poverty for two decades as ultimately more damaging to  both the Church and society than the pain inflicted on a single child in a dark closet.  But if you read his treatise, you might comprehend that he sees the big picture in the individual acts and how all sin and suffering ripple outward into global injustice and the separation of humanity from Divine Love.  This man can see beyond himself.  Can you?
