What the CDF can do

I felt, and continue even today to feel, like a broken man who can never fully recover from the suspicion, which the authority of my church - a church which I love and have served during my whole life - has thrust upon me. The joy of living has gone, perhaps never to return.

Words from the Belgian Jesuit, the late Jacques Dupuis, on the devastating impact made by the CDF's attacks on his work, and of his disgust at the way Cardinal Ratzinger defended an unjust and dishonest inquiry.

That same broken feeling has been experienced by a number of Irish theologians and writers.

And then the Catholic Church wonders 'what's gone wrong'.

So much.

The CDF hunts heretics. No heretics, no CDF. QED
