This is very nice.

I wish that the Church of Rome were as open and transparent as TEC in the selection and election of a new bishop. Our bishops must be approved by a majority of all orders of the church via election and approval.

I am bursting with excitement with the news:

I wish The Pope would do something positive for the Catholic church by helping abused victims, suffering clergy by abolishing celibacy instead of ordaining none Catholics into the Catholic church and writing books.

There is very many problems within the Catholic church but, the Pope insists on avoiding it all and pretending things are not as bad as they are, no they are not actually.....they are a thousand times worse but, he is keeping truly shut about it.

It is interesting one of the bishop elect was a seminarian in the early 90's, when seminarians were sexually abusing one another. What secrets does he have?
