Katolska kyrkan i fritt fall i hela Europa

Katolska kyrkan, den gamla brutala maktinstitutionen, befinner sig i fritt fall över hela Europa. Läs artikeln “The fate of Catholic Europe: the void within“, hos the Economist och fröjdas över hur frihetens klockor ringer över kontinenten.

But in many European places where Catholicism remained all-powerful until say, 1960, the church is losing whatever remains of its grip on society at an accelerating pace. The drop in active adherence to, and knowledge of, Christianity is a long-running and gentle trend; but the hollowing out of church structures—parishes, monasteries, schools, universities, charities—is more dramatic. That is the backdrop against which the paedophile scandal, now raging across Europe after its explosion in the United States, has to be understood. The church’s fading institutional power makes it (mercifully) easier for people who were abused by clerics to speak out; and as horrors are laid bare, the church, in many people’s eyes, grows even weaker.

Världen utvecklas och vi med den. Det är inte utan att man känner lite hopp inför framtiden.
