Is this satire?
I can't tell.
I hope not!
La Stampa is not one to use satire so I presume it isn't.
But stripping titles from the good ole boy network isn't going to unravel the real problem but it is a step in the right direction.
The real problem is a little more complex. It involves a Bishop or Cardinal who favors the immoral and amoral priests and suppresses and silences faithful ones to keep the matrix of power and catechesis in the hands of those who wave admiration, money and political power under his nose.
Changing the name we give to the scoundrels who persecute Church teaching to pursue this path doesn't cut it as a fix.
That is just smoke and mirrors.
Cronies are created by the exact flaw which Pope Francis appears to admire.
