The brilliant campaign of the current hierarchy to alienate their own flocks with political posturing, moral baseness, intellectual rigor mortis, and reactionary theology, along with purging the seminaries of any gays or gay-friendly candidates, was supposed to create a more committed, more orthodox, purer, smaller church. It's working! Congrats to Dolan and Ratzinger. Very soon they will have their church. And it will be empty.
