US Psychologist: Those Who Use the Term Clericalism Are Participating in the Coverup

Edit: we noticed this word being childishly thrown around by some of the usual suspects, and it is so widespread that it’s being used by more trusted news sources also. This is a problem with heresy, and laicism (secularism) is being posed as the solution. 

Those who are familiar with the depredations to religion caused by government agencies, particularly in the United States, not to mention the deep moral depravity of government officials would do well to question more government and lay oversight. 

Does anyone still recall the Franklin Savings and Loan scandal?

US psychologist Richard Fitzgibbons has dealt with priests for almost 40 years. In all these cases involving children or adolescents, the perpetrator was previously involved in homosexual relationship

Washington DC. (Kath.net) The well-known US psychologist Richard Fitzgibbons criticized in a contribution to "LifeSiteNews" the explanations that the abuse crisis of the Catholic Church has something to do with clericalism. If you do this, you engaging in part of a coverup of the problem. Fitzgibbons recalled that the recent Pennsylvania Grand Jury Report clearly stated that there was clearly a homosexual problem. 73 percent of the victims can be assigned to this category.

In his opinion, the abuse crisis is rooted in psychological and spiritual conflicts among bishops and priests. It is about narcissism and "profound weakness in male confidence," which can lead to a homosexual relationship system.

In his clinic, he had treated victims of priests for almost 40 years. In any case involving children or adolescents, the perpetrator was previously involved in homosexual relationships. Fitzgibbons is director of the Institute for Marital Healing and has worked with thousands of couples for the last 34 years.

But Jesus called them to him, and said: You know that the princes of the Gentiles lord it over them; and they that are the greater, exercise power upon them. It shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be the greater among you, let him be your minister: And he that will be first among you, shall be your servant. -- Matthew 20:25-27

For the body also is not one member, but many. If the foot should say, because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body ? And if the ear should say, because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body ? If the whole body were the eye, where would be the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where would be the smelling? But now God hath set the members every one of them in the body as it hath pleased him. And if they all were one member, where would be the body? But now there are many members indeed, yet one body. And the eye cannot say to the hand: I need not thy help; nor again the head to the feet: I have no need of you. Yea, much more those that seem to be the more feeble members of the body, are more necessary. And such as we think to be the less honourable members of the body, about these we put more abundant honour; and those that are our uncomely parts, have more abundant comeliness. But our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, giving to that which wanted the more abundant honour, That there might be no schism in the body; but the members might be mutually careful one for another 1 Corinthians 12:14-25

I take "clericalism" in the sense given here: Clericalism is defined as a state of affairs in which there is an unnecessary or overly exaggerated importance attributed to clergy, in such a way that the laity relate to them as subjects to be ruled rather than a people to be lovingly pastored. This can obviously take many forms, but sorry: viewing the laity as objects for sexual conquest, viewing the good of the Church as consisting of the concealment of the sins and crimes of clergy, viewing the material wealth of the Church as a blank check with which to buy vices or pay off victims -- if anything is clericalism, these are clericalism. It has as much, maybe more, to do with the Satanic vice of pride as it does with lust. It deserves to be called out by name.

As for the solution, there is no human solution. Not even prayer and fasting, if they are seen as the coin that automatically triggers the bubble gum. Of course lay control is not the solution; neither is sloth disguised as hope, or servility falsely called docility. No hope is to be found from the laity, or from the bishops, or from Pope Francis; our only hope is from Christ, Who purifies His Church in ways that are often uncomfortable. Except for Christ, we could not, we should not, hope for the Church to even survive; with Him, we know She will survive, we can hope She is purified within our lifetimes, but we cannot hope that She or we will "be carried to the skies on flowery beds of ease".
