As Pia di Solenni points out in her article "A Necessary Conversation" on Headline Bistro:
"There has to be space in the Church for the faithful to discuss problematic issues. As I mentioned at the conference, if we don’t provide that space for the faithful within the Church, then the Church is effectively telling the faithful to go to other sources, including those biased against the Church."
I agree. Otherwise we become just another Royal Society for Putting Things on Top of Other Things until someone speaks up.
