Ik ben het met Mgr. Mutsaerts helemaal eens, we moeten beslist in de kerk blijven. Maar hoe behouden we ons geloof? In Nederland gelooft 70% van de priesters niet meer in God, zelfs sommige bisschoppen geloven niet meer in God. Veel priesters en bisschoppen die niet meer geloven in God zijn homoseksueel. De gelovige priesters hebben hier grote moeite mee en worden daardoor gedwongen om uit te treden. Mgr. Mutsaerts visie is correct, maar dan moeten de niet gelovige priesters en de de homoseksuele priesters uit de organisatie worden gezet. Dan krijgen de gelovige priesters de ruimte om het ware Rooms Katholieke geloof te verkondigen.

He really has his rose colored glasses on when he evaluates the Church in America. Just because it is a little further away from being pronounced dead than in Western Europe, it is not any sort of exemplar for what a successful Vatican II Church could look like. Still, it’s good to see that Weigel recognizes that things aren’t great, even if he represents hardly anyone, besides neo-con seminary faculty members, if there are any left at this late date.
