As a lifelong Catholic I wholeheartedly agree that our Church has more than it’s share of problems and challenges (including an intractably stubborn and arrogant leadership that makes confronting our flaws all that more difficult).
But I can genuinely reassure my Protestant brothers and sisters we are NOT scanning the skies trying to cultivate ties with demons from outer space.
Protestants need to realize that though we don’t agree on some doctrinal specifics, OTOH we need to hang together on taking conservative moral stands.
Yes, fossilized stubbornness is a hallmark of old institutions. Protestantism often suffers the opposite, a virulent fractious instability that divides and weakens. Both are often ego driven even though flipsides of each other.
Laity has their feet upon the ground. However, leadership is completely Jesuit. The mighty Jesuits now control the catholic Church. You can’t make this stuff up!
