This is the title of George Neumayr's article from yesterday's online edition of the American Spectator. I think the article is aptly named, as it details the way in which the Archdiocese of Washington completely bungled the handling of Father Guarnizo's situation. He starts with the oft-repeated quote from St. John Chrysostom: "The road to hell is paved with the skulls of bad bishops." Considering that St. John is a Father of the Church, one must conclude that the problem of lack-luster bishops in the Church is by no means new. However, the damaging effects of poor actions are not thus mitigated.
The America Needs Fatima blog posted a similar piece, noting how the chancery literally gave the gay rights bunch a big victory as they threw a good priest under the bus. Compounding their shame is that they did so when we in Maryland are facing off against this movement to salvage the status of traditional marriage in Maryland.
“I know that the Lord wants the (Second Vatican) Council to make headway in the Church. Historians tell us that it takes 100 years for a Council to be applied. We are halfway there. So, if you want to help me, do whatever it takes to move the Council forward in the Church.” – Francis the Merciful
