Anything if given long enough will, it seems, turn into the opposite of itself. Monks end up running public schools. The Labour Party turns into a reserve team for the Tories. Communist officials lose no time in forming themselves into a privileged elite. Christians burn people alive in the name of the gentle lamb of God. I’m amazed at the lack of dismay and horror amongst Catholics at their own past and the Church’s frequent betrayal of its founder’s principles. No wonder so many now hold the Church in contempt.
