Author and former priest James Carroll's new article is headlined, "To Save The Church, Dismantle The Priesthood." Carroll argues that for the Catholic faith and the church itself to survive, it must leave behind the archaic system that has enabled abuse and cover-ups. He also discusses his own internal struggle, balancing his love for the Catholic faith with the growing body of evidence that the Catholic Church as an institution has failed to hold itself accountable.
