FOLLOW UP: The storm building in the D. of Kansas City-St. Joseph

I wonder if we have gotten to a point in the wealthy West where the erosion of culture and mores is so advanced that the notion of fatherhood is simply an option.  In vast swathes of society fathers are optional or perhaps even disposable.

As a follow up to the entry about the storm building in Kansas City, MO over the priest who had child pornography, and in reference to the blog entry at SERVIAM (go there to discuss this – the combox is open), I found this exchange interesting.

Context: Some will assert that Bp. Finn must resign. That’s rubbish, of course.

    goodbye Bp Finn as a mother of seven children I see no other way

    So Bishop Finn should give in to the jackals in the media and just quit? Did our Lord not promise all of us persecution and trials? “Quo vadis?” “I am going to Rome to be crucified again.” Should the good bishop flee his own cross and leave his flock to fend for themselves against marauding wolves? If he does resign, there’s not a priest in that diocese that will be safe. Merely an accusation will be enough to ruin a priest’s life and reputation. If the liberals in the Church and the hate mongers in the media can bring him down, nobody is safe. God help the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph if that occurs.

Do I hear an “Amen!”?
