This is an example of what I meant by the Pope criticizing the RCC. Maybe Pope Benedict should be banned from FR?

He's not just criticizing - he's cleaning house of the mess that some heterodox bishops made in the 70s and 80s.

That's his job.

Also - he's motivated by a desire to purify and renew the Church, which Some Others apparently are not.

“This is an example of what I meant by the Pope criticizing the RCC. Maybe Pope Benedict should be banned from FR?...”

This statement shows a stunted understanding of what PBXVI states. He was criticizing the loss of a sense of Christian morality among Western Civilization, which he conceded had also entered into the very center of the RCC. Thus, he admits that the Church also became vulnerable to this moral collapse, and it resulted in a failure to rectify the problem - which was a total lack of morality among some of the clergy, and the subsequent lack of rapid corrective action in the church.

Anyone who sees this as a specific criticism of the RCC has not really grasped the enormity of the problem he is addressing. Our entire Western Civilization is at stake per Pope Benedict XVI.
