To the editor:

I have read Bishop Morlino’s letter regarding the continuing sex abuse scandal in the Church.

He asks  us to pray and fast, to make reparation for the sins of the priests and bishops who sexually abused children and adults, and for those in the hierarchy who covered up those sins.

To the editor:

As we hear about and discuss the serious and continuing sex scandal within the Catholic Church, let’s start by placing the blame where it belongs — squarely on the failed leadership of the hierarchy of the Catholic Church. The failure has been caused by a lack of true leadership skills and being controlled by vanity and arrogance.

Robert K. Greenleaf was an advocate for Servant Leadership, and in the worldwide history of mankind, the greatest example of a servant leader was Jesus Christ. Jesus was critical of the Pharisees stating in Matthew 23: 2-3, 5, “The scribes and the Pharisees have succeeded Moses as teachers; therefore, do everything and observe everything they tell you. But do not follow their example . . . All their works are performed to be seen.”

To the editor:

So well presented were Bishop Morlino’s two letters. So well spoken and explained.

Also, so sad that such letters are necessary. Prayers certainly need to be heading our daily “to do” list.

Bishop Morlino gives reason to have faith and continue to believe.

To the editor:

It’s not your imagination, the floods that rocked southern, western, and central Wisconsin the past several weeks are getting worse and are occurring more often. The culprit: too much carbon dioxide in our atmosphere has put storms on steroids. Warmer air holds more water and storms have gotten more severe.

The good news is that solutions exist that won’t break the bank and are much less costly than cleaning up from continued destruction. One of the most promising developments is the formation and rapid growth of the bipartisan House of Representatives Climate Solutions Caucus. It includes Wisconsin Congressman Mike Gallagher (R-Green Bay), who also earned 100 percent rating from the National Right to Life committee.
