REAL STATE OF AMERICA ATLAS

Host Michelle Schroeder-Fletcher speaks with Joni Seager and Cynthia Enloe about their book, REAL STATE OF AMERICA ATLAS, which draws back the curtain on our complex nation to reveal the myriad realities of the American experience-from our changing demographics to patterns of home ownership to the kinds of food we eat. The atlas upends many long-held myths and shows us who we are today.

Thomas Doyle Part Two: Radically Changing The Church

program date: 
Mon, 07/04/2011

Last week Bill and Tom talked about sex-abuse in the Church, resistance to dealing with it by leadership. When Bill asks Tom what he'd do if he was Pope, Tom says he'd get rid of the monarchial form of the Church. Tom describes the way that the monarchies of the past constrained the way the Church developed. People are tired of the hierarchy, which insulates the sex-abuse, but the Church remains officially terrified by democracy and liberation theology.

program date: 
Mon, 06/27/2011

Recently a report by US Catholic Bishops charges the 1960s with corrupting priests - among other things, because of promoting sexual freedom. Thomas Doyle, a Catholic Priest rejects this, pointing out it was a global problem, and relates his experience within the Church before and during when the media began to expose sex-abuse in the Church. Doyle tried to engage the Church when abuse cases started to penetrate the media in the 1970s, advising them on addressing and preventing abuse, but was ignored. So, he went on to expose this abuse. Doyle draws a picture of Bishops ignoring sociopathology in order protect their image and the image of the Church.
