An article by Rod Dreher which is about an article by Jonathan Last, about the current Catholic Church crisis.
Dreher may be way too apocalyptic in his analysis, while Italians are way too blasé. He says this about the Italians:
“I have been in Italy one week, and have had countless rich, stimulating conversations with Italian Catholic friends. Yet I find that I struggle to convey the gravity of the scandal roiling the US Catholic Church. It doesn’t seem to make a lot of sense to many folks here. Some think it’s nothing more than a political attack on Pope Francis. Others agree that it’s bad, but they say the Church has always been corrupt to a certain degree, and don’t grasp why Americans are so worked up about it.”
