Your posts are always amusing - and always selling laymen short. To be sure, you do offer misguided and shallow platitudes to the layman. But you generally presume that the layman is incapable of appreciating the higher, harder truths - ideals that man may not always achieve, but which are worth striving for nonetheless.

You presume that every layman is a hopeless boobus americanus. How very sad.

Well, then I'll have to start having someone other than you in mind when I presume.

Where do you get that idea?

I think laymen are pretty smart, smarter than most priests.

They thought the clerical abuse crisis was serious, whereas only 2% of priests thought it was.

In this case, the clerics have the problem with appreciating the higher truths.
