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.

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.

The priests know about it, and 98% of them don't think it's any big deal.

Evidence please? I think you are full of $*&@ and I am offended - very offended - that you would actually think this not to mention type it out.

There is NOT ONE priest I have ever met who is not sick about this. Sometimes I think you actually hate priests.
