: dear Elaine,
: You know that what I mean, is not an attack on the Church, the institution, per se, but a metaphor for how men can and did corrupt it. You have to take it within the context it was presented.
: I really wish the Catholic Church or any other religious institution, had more of sincerely devout people like you and my husband Michael.
Oh, Vita! You need not clarify that for me! I understand how you meant it ... & I appreciate what you are saying, as well as your thoughts & anecdotes on this reparation issue. Yep, men (gender neutral context) can, have, do, & will corrupt - which is why we're having these discussions at all!
Your family history is very pertinent to these issues now being raised & I think you've brought into the discussion yet more 'sides' of the coin which are necessary if one is to honestly pursue an examination of the human condition - all too often a dark side emerges.
Thanks, Vita ...
