    Mr. Phelan: I'd love to see your response to my Letter to the Editor which was in response to your article. You can find it entitled "Column was Sexist". Thanks!

    It's certainly time for an overall change in the Catholic Church. Get rid of the Pope for a start. He is NOT a representative of God on earth. He is a mere human being, living in the lap of luxury. Get rid of the confessional. It's absolutely pathetic to think that people actually confess their sins to a man and it depends on him whether or not you deserve absolution from your sins. That's why Jesus was tortured and then died on the Cross; to forgive us of our sins. Not a human priest, especially one who may have abused a boy sometime. Then they give us prayer for Penance! Oh how much more I can say. Oh, one thing more I can say; I am now attending another denominational church.

    Mr. Phelan, I am almost inclined to wish devoutly that you might indeed be the new pope. That would mean the Holy Spirit would at least keep you from proclaiming this sort of column in an infallible encyclical, whatever your private opinion might continue to be, so that the faithful could really emphasize that such opinions can indeed be much mistaken even if held by a Pope.
