"Cardinal Sin is the bust of a priest with its face sawn off and replaced with a mosaic of bathroom tiles"
Describing the statue as a Christmas present, the artist said in a statement: "At this time of year it's easy to forget the true meaning of Christianity – the lies, the corruption, the abuse."
I don't know why I'm posting this, except half of me feels sick to see our Church portrayed this way, and the other half of me remains angry that systematic abuse of children was allowed to go on for so long. In all the important ways it doesn't matter if the rate of child abuse in our Church is the same or less than that of the Boy Scouts, or Protestant Churches - once is too many.
Have we done enough as a Church to witness to the world our metanoia?
