One such lay leader who wears a cross bigger than bishops and looks holier than cows, openly says Parish Priests are KINGS! You can understand he must be crawling on all his fours and calling the Archbishop of Calcutta EMPEROR or CZAR!
The other day I in the company of a friend, happened to overhear a discussion among professors at one university in Kolkata. The topic was corruption and hypocrisy of religious authorities. When one person asked a professor on the solution to this rampant corruption and absolute lack of transparency, the Professor replied “Beating, pure and simple beating. No amount of discussion will do for these religious leaders know how to dodge and play with words.”
The Church, particularly the Indian Church, is making a mockery of the word “Mercy” in this Year of Mercy!
Let like-minded Laity of Mumbai and Kolkata unite and keep highlighting issues of corruption in journals including national newspapers.
