Newspaper Article: "Church needs to answer critics, instead it silences them"

Retired priest Eric Hodgens writes in the Melbourne's The Age newspaper:

A vast crowd of priests and laity who passionately love the church are alarmed at the fundamentalism pervading the mentality of the Roman bureaucracy and many bishops.

They are alarmed at the bully culture of Rome - which surfaces in turn in the management style of so many bishops - and at the favoured status given to authoritarian movements including Opus Dei, the Legionaries of Christ (now discredited and under reconstruction) and the Heralds of the Gospel.
