Pope Benedict XVI: the way for the Catholic Church in Ireland to renew itself is to become more fully and authentically Catholic

Apparently, the best way for the Catholic Church to renew itself is to become less Catholic. That is the clear implication of the demands that the church's critics have been making of it since the publication of the Murphy report.

The Church must allow married clergy, they insist. It must allow women clergy. It must radically change its teaching on sexuality. It must allow inter-communion. It must allow divorced and remarried people to receive the sacraments.
