This week the financial health of both the Trump organization and the Catholic Archdiocese of Baltimore is in danger. Ironic that two corrupt organizations faced the same situation this week. While few people will mourn the end of the Trump business, the picture for the Archdiocese is more mixed.
In evaluating the worth of the Catholic Church in what it does in a positive and negative light some might argue that its death would be a bad thing. Balancing that view are those who believe that any organization that has protected pedophiles should no longer be allowed to exist. I wonder how an organization that was created in a very different time and culture is even relevant in our current world. The Catholic Church's history has almost every element that is abhorrent to most people today. Racism, sexism, killing, and plunder can be attributed to the Church over its history. Protecting pedophiles is only the latest example of why this institution has lost its way in a modern way. The Church will never acknowledge that celibate priests have led to sexual dysfunction and continue to turn people away from the Church.
The Trump business, the Catholic Church, and the Republican Party are showing how the cancer of corruption will destroy you from within. Good riddance to all three for a better modern world.
