“The sinfulness of priests and bishops is not in debate. They are sinful. We are. And the Church has, both universally and locally, publicly acknowledged its sinfulness and the transgressions of its leaders. There is no need to take this up in a public debate.” Fr. Ranhilio Callangan Aquino, Dean of the Graduate School of Law, San Beda College wrote.
But why not? the church is a public figure which has also been the same with islam, inc, quiboloy cult or whatever. The point is, we CAN talk about how rotten a church is.
Kahit saan! Debate, tv, Internet!
