We can look with disdain

and disgust

at abusive priests

and abusive enabling bishops,

but ultimately

it’s our fault.

The Roman Catholic Clergy

could never have

the unbridled and abusive power it has

without our quiet, passive

acquiescence.

Our grandparents, parents, and we

have simply turned religious matters

and the running of the church

over to the priests, bishops, Cardinals, and Pope,

as we all had more important things to do,

like survive in the real world.

We were all happy

using Sunday morning liturgy

and our weekly donation

to substantiate our Catholicity

and fund all of the clergy’s endeavors,

unchecked and unaudited.

We just paid, prayed, and obeyed

as they told us to,

the frozen chosen. [more]
