A Chinese bishop whose ordination caused a crisis in the Vatican's relations with China may avoid excommunication because he may have been pressured into being consecrated without the pope's consent, the Vatican said Thursday.It must be grand to spend one's day worrying about the rules of make-believe. I guess it's like playing an endless game of Dungeons and Dragons. I'll bet they have a lot of fun over there in the vatican, pulling on different costumes and picking out shoes and excommunicating people and everything.
And in the meantime, the sexual abuse of children by priests continues unabated. From AP today:
A former bishop's televised admission that he sexually abused two of his nephews caused an uproar in Belgium on Friday, with the prime minister, senior clergy and a prosecutor expressing shock at the way the ex-prelate made light of his offenses.
