This story puts a zing in my step. The days of the lavender mafia and cover-ups are coming to an end. Let’s hope the Borgs (National Episcopal Conferences) follow suit. The hand holding and cumbaya theology that perpetuates them is ending, thanks be to God.
I hope this serves as a stark warning to CanChurch. If you’re not living the Catholic faith or playing fast and loose with the Church’s teachings, you could be out.
