Being Christlike is an enviable Christian goal. Unfortunately, nobody reaches that goal.

And therefore, the goal should be abandoned and we should be satisfied with our clergy's (and ourselves) behaving like classless high-schoolers?

I don't buy it. I know people "made perfect through suffering," or as near as makes no difference, so I know that laying down the ego is a realistic possibility. However, I think it's a better possibility for the clergy nobody's ever heard of than for the "rock stars."

“we should be satisfied with our clergy’s (and ourselves) behaving like classless high-schoolers? “

Where has he acted like a “classless high schooler”?

...I’m sure if you were accused of infidelity in a very public way, you would want to defend yourself. Father Corapi’s point is that he cannot defend himself and his justice will be based on randomness.
