I'm a life-long Catholic furious about the corruption, crimes, and cover-ups of the church's leaders. It's past time to purge their ranks.
It is hard to be a Catholic today. It is clear from this summer's Pennsylvania grand jury report, the Cardinal Theodore McCarrick scandal and, most recently, the dodge by Pope Francis to a Vatican diplomat's testimony that the pontiff rehabilitated McCarrick, that the Catholic Church has been betrayed by her leaders.
For decades, our bishops, cardinals and the Vatican have engaged in an unforgivable cover-up of sins and alleged crimes against children. While in some cases, the cover-up may have been done with the purpose of aiding and abetting sinful and criminal conduct, it is also apparent that the cover-up was engineered with the goal of protecting the church's "brand."
