Cincinnati Archbishop Under Attack

Over the past few weeks every time I've gone out of the office for lunch and had on the Bill Cunningham show I've been amazed at the attack that he is launching on the Archbishop of Cincinnati. It is relentless, and it is inflamatory.

Sadly, I think even the Catholic League would have a hard time calling it anti-Catholic though. Because Cunningham, a Catholic, is expressing outrage at the sinful behavior that has been coddled and covered up by the Archdiocese and were not talking years ago, but in recent days. There is an arrogance, not to mention strange lack of humility that has been on display by some bishops in response to this crisis within their ranks. One wonders if they read the Office of Readings that they are required to pray every day and over the past weeks the condemnations leveled against those shepherds who do not stand up for the truth.

Until they do people like Bill Cunningham will have plenty to blast them for.
