Last weekend I commented about Msgr Pope's blog piece that seemed to indicate that good Catholics should maintain a polite silence about abusive behavior of clerics out of a misguided sense of obedience and/or unity. Yesterday's Vortex actually touched on this a bit albeit without specific reference to Msgr Pope's piece (and most likely he had no intention of referring to the Pope piece)
The Vortex in question is the fourth in a series regarding Catholic manhood. The relevant snippet occurs at the 4:55 mark, so you might want to stop the video there and study closely the words of St John Chrysothom that appear on the screen - the ones that start with "the person who does not become irate when he has cause to be sins.."
Too many good Catholics seem to think that anger itself is a sin. Actually it's a God-given emotion, just like all the others. Now it must be controlled - just like all the others, but it should never be dismissed or held in disdain, for that itself is a sinful abuse. Click here if you cannot see embedded video.
It's not what the Pope says, it is what he does.
