Mark Silk On Philly: Zero Tolerance For Foot-Dragging Bishops

Mark Silk gives his usually incisive take on the situation in Philadelphia, where, as he notes, the people are likely going to support zero tolerance for the chancery's foot dragging tactics as the Dallas norms imposed on pedophile clergy. Silk is also that rare breed of blogger, one who is deeply learned and, just so, recognizes that some of the questions we humans face are perennial ones, going back at least as far as Juvenal!
