Bishops – Old Boys Network? Dolan disrespectful and full of self
Not Soon Enough…A local gay rights groups said George crossed the line when he compared the gay rights movement to the Ku Klux Klan, according to the Chicago Tribune.
House of Cards- Big Timmy Dolan was uber disrespectful of the pope in his comments to the Bishops (aka The old Boys Network)
It was said ….”He gave a sarcasm-laden report to his fellow bishops, saying, “Too bad we missed that real synod, brothers, because the one we were at was hardly as spicy.”
Sanity – not sarcasm
The Rev. Thomas Reese, a Jesuit priest and senior analyst for National Catholic Reporter, a liberal, independent news outlet, said in an interview between the sessions that this group of bishops was shaped by the popes who appointed them, John Paul II and Benedict XVI.
“There is no bishop who is standing up and being the real leader of a Francis faction,” Father Reese said. “They grew up in conservative families, went to conservative seminaries and have been told not to talk to theologians who are creative because they’ve been labeled heretical.
Now Francis is saying let’s go in a different direction and let’s have a discussion. The last two pontificates, there was no room for discussion, and this makes them nervous and confused.”
