The ex corde debate really shows the 'unofficial schism'. We need new leadership here that follows the Magisterial teachings but given how slowly things happen in the church it probably won't happen until my kids have grey hair. The really sad thing to me is the present need for more good Priests and the waffling the current crisis will have in terms of deterring religious vocations. We will need a miracle.

You are probably right that this will all take time. There are actually quite a number of good Catholics active both as priests and as lay educators who are providing a good foundation for the next century. We do need to see bishops addressing certain things more confidently and forcefully. The PC dissenters really need to move along. If they don't want to uphold and support the Catholic faith, there are faithful Catholics who can replace them. The traditional and historic centers of Catholic learning in the U.S. need to be reclaimed by our leaders. Bishops should be actively speaking out against dissent wherever it rears its ugly head. No one has a right to squat on church property and force everyone else to listen to their anti-Catholic, PC whining.
