Apparently, the problem is in the clergy, and that is where it should start. The laity should not be involved. When Archbishop Krebs was here, listening to the clergy......that was a good start. And that can continue on if the Archbishop desires it. However, there is a problem that needs to be addressed FIRST before "peace talks" can continue. The problem that needs to be addressed is the fact that information was leaked out of a closed meeting. The minutes of the meeting and probably even a recording had fallen into the wrong hands. Furthermore, the email that Father John sent to his brothers (fellow priests) was also leaked out. Apparently, someone either forwarded the email or printed it out and gave it to the wrong hands.
This can be addressed in either two ways:
1. Everyone's cell phones and recording devices should be confiscated before entering the meeting. It is unfortunate that this may have to be done because an individual priest does not know how to act like an intelligent adult. This is what one happens when one person sins. The sin of one person can cause the suffering of many others.
2. Find the culprit and remove him from the clergy. I know this sounds harsh, but even Israel feels that Hamas needs to be taken out before "peace talks" can resume with the moderates who have been striving for peace.
