“The Dysfunction, Disconnection, Elitism — And The Narcissism* — That Dominate The Culture Of The Vatican To This Day.”


“Wednesday marked the first time that Ireland’s Parliament has lambasted the Vatican, rather than local church leaders, over the past 17 years of pedophile-priest scandals in Ireland. Those revelations have eroded Catholic authority in a nation where the church still owns most schools and several hospitals, and state-run broadcasters still toll a twice-daily call to Catholic prayer.”
