Frank Fear: Francis doesn’t like how the Church is doing business. He’s a Progressive, not a company man. He expects the Church, as an institution, to practice what it preaches. He wants Sunday morning rhetoric to carry through the week.

Steve Ybarra: Newtron signals the beginning of this war by asking people to go and talk to the “Bishops” and hear for themselves that the Catholic Church is being destroyed by these edicts. Wait, ask the BISHOPS!?!
Carl Matthes: Society has learned that the force which drives sexually-based assault and abuse is not easily categorized, understood or rooted out. What is understood is that this force is not driven by sexual need; men turn their physical and manipulative powers into a destructive force.
