Bishop Geoffrey Robinson’s twelve points to reform the Church. (With acknowledgement to John Chuchman)

i. The Angry God: This image the institution projects of a God of Wrath and Anger needs to be challenged. It is wrong, and bad theology.

ii. The Male Church: Women have been marginalized and treated as second class by the institution for far too long.

iii. The Culture of Celibacy: Not so much celbacy per se but mandatory celibacy has to take a major part of the blame as a contributing cause of this crisis.

A Problem with my Site

Anyone who Googles my site (tonyflannery.com) will see that I have been invaded by some crowd who are using my name to sell, of all things, Viagra!!!!!!
I have reported it to ActonBV, who manage the site for me, and hopefully it will be cleared up.

In preparation for this pre-synodal meeting, 15,000 young people engaged online through the Facebook groups.
