Certain sins bring infestation of demons: horrid #sodoclericalism “parties” close to the most important places in the Vatican

UPDATE:
Just because a bishop sets a “policy”, that doesn’t mean that the rest of us in a diocese are obliged to follow that “policy” if that policy clearly contradicts the universal law of the Church.

When they claim “Clericalism!”, they really mean #sodoclericalism

There are a few terms in common usage which I would like to be able to reform in common usage.  For example, I wish that “priestcraft” wasn’t so relentlessly derogatory.  It can mean “professional knowledge and skill in respect to … Continue reading
