At the height of the Scandal in Boston, and especially during tense settlement negotiations last year, many of the city’s editorial columnists expressed the similar sentiment that the Church should sell whatever property it had to in order to pay off the lawyers and the victims. Now those very same columnists are writing in their newspapers about awful and evil the Church is for selling off people’s spiritual homes and how children and old people are gathered on the steps of their parishes and schools, devastated and crying.

I detect a whiff of hypocrisy.
