“Sadly, there are still many in the [Catholic] church who regard valid criticism of its teachings and its conduct as tantamount to sectarianism.”

    Of course it’s wrong to criticize something that is absolutely true! /sarcasm off

    It’s certainly not just confined to catholicism. Regardless, in a free spoken society all religions will have to get used to the idea that they don’t get a free pass on criticism.

    If I was a betting man then I’d put money on Catholic Christianity to be the first major religion to disappear into cult status within the next 100 years.

    @PEB
    Maybe in the west. It appears to be growing elsewhere unfortunately.

    Both science and the arts are built upon cultures of vigorous self-criticism; religious discourse is not. As a result, religious dogmatism still reigns unchallenged in almost every society on earth—dividing humanity from itself, inflaming conflict, preventing wise public policy, and diverting scarce resources.

    And the ones who agree with the criticism are probably jumping ship from the sinking church.

    Here you go. The Catholic church hires pedophile to investigate their pedophiles.
