WHAT I'D LOVE TO SEE
I'd love to see a bishop "Fisk" the efforts of the carper's in the blogosphere the way they seem comfortable doing to every statement they release.
Something like, "While Mr. McGuinness is correct the the hierarchy failed to do ___, he fails to fully account for his, and the laity's failure to carry out his vocation as a layman, and how that impacts the culture. Yes, he mentions it once or twice, but nowhere near the accounting we need to see from him. Until, that comes, his words are just that, empty words."
Hey, if we want to tell the bishops we want them to be strong leaders, why don't we start by following them? I know, it's not as intuitive or obvious as taking out full page ads attacking them, but, hey, maybe it'll work.
