- Hell is a serious business. It is one of the main missions of priests to save people from that horrible fate and direct them to heaven. Since when do competent priests consider hell to be a joking matter?
- If, as Ms. Yore suggests, Pope Francis knew of McCarrick's sordid conduct with young men, why did he not address it appropriately? Was he afraid of McCarrick or were the jokes a "wink-wink" sort of approval of his behavior?
Let us pray for the gift of repentance to the cardinal and all clergy who have engaged in this conduct, lest they suffer the horrifying fate about which they so glibly joke today.
