The Gutter Press

Not all those Catholic priests accused of historical sexual misconduct have the good fortune to have their reputations restored through the Australian legal system, as Cardinal Pell, mercifully and eventually, did.  The case of Fr John Fleming has yet to be resolved in his favour, but the fight goes on.  As does the disgraceful abuse of this good and holy priest, by those who originally nailed him to his cross.

Many Catholics (and High Church Anglicans) are beyond dismayed at the vandalising of their liturgies by modernist and post-modernist clergy who refuse simply to "say the black and do the red".  It is time that rock-star pastors realised the damage they have done to sacred traditions and to the beauty of God-shaped and God-oriented worship, and abandoned their ego-driven ways.

Laws which mandated breaking the seal of the confessional were enacted in two Australian states last week.
