Quote for Day: "What A Gift the Catholic Hierarchy Has Been Handed by the Irish"

Tom Fox in National Catholic Reporter on the opportunity that the Irish vote might (and should) offer the pastoral leaders of the Catholic church — if they'd be willing to seize this opportunity:

What a gift the Catholic hierarchy has been handed by the Irish with their overwhelming vote to legalize same sex marriages. Coming just months before the Synod on the Family set for next October in Rome, the vote by this Catholic nation is nothing less than a church plebiscite – a vote of the Catholic sensus fidelium for all to see that official Catholic teaching on human sexuality is wrong, hurtful, and even, at times, immoral.
