With revelation that a 73 year old priest had just fathered his first child and the home coming of Bishop Casey, Richard Delevan has a few suggestions for the Catholic Church in Ireland and how, under conservative Pope Benedict, it might get out from under some of its more pressing problems. He’s only very partly joking when he argues in his Sunday Tribune column that the Catholic Church should become Protestant, for a while at least.
