Whjy is it ruined? Personally i feel that the church does mountains of good and attacks on it are largely unjustified.
The problem is where the attacks have merit. Look at Poznan - the Church here has committed two massive mistakes within a year. First of all, they tried to kick out a public school from a building that they "reclaimed" - and now they're trying to claim 95 million zloty for parcels of land near Lake Malta - land which was already subject to an agreement between the City and Church.
These two incidents are the tip of the iceberg - and this the problem.
But it is! Not by the priest of course but by Gazeta Wyborcza, i wonder could it be because so many of its top brass are jewish ex-communists with a bone to pick with a church?
Or could it be that their readership doesn't believe in the all-reaching, all-emcompassing power of the Church? Could it be that the newspaper is run by people who didn't want to replace the dictatorship of Communism with a dictatorship of the Church?
The article isn't an attack by Gazeta Wyborcza - instead, it's probably one of the few outlets that could carry such a story with a degree of credibility. Unless of course, you subscribe to the belief that the Church should not be questioned - ever.
The question that this thread begs to ask is why Gazeta Wyborcza assaults the church with such iron consequence and such mindless agression, why every critique, every minor episode instantly becomes a major article in GW.
You might want to ask yourself why opponents of Gazeta Wyborcza pick on their every move with the same mindless aggression. Perhaps you might also want to question why the lower elements of society tend to attack Germans and Russians with venom, while other people have moved on. Exactly the same situation.
That's the essence of it: it is not an attack on the Polish church. It is rather an attack on the paganism within the Polish church, paganism so well established and cherished under the name of Jesus ...
If anything, it's an attack on the way that the Church has failed to adapt in Poland. Really, all the priest has done is say publicly what everyone is thinking - that it's an institution in crisis.
Gibberish, why does an essentially ex communist newspaper attack the church so much though?
Ex communist newspaper? Do you need reminded again that the editor in chief was locked up for several years by the communists? Nah...doesn't suit your agenda to admit that, does it?
You mean hundreds of shelters run by church in Poland do not help people? Oh wait they do!
The problem isn't with the hundreds of shelters, but rather where the money comes from to fund such shelters. Don't forget, the Church enjoys quite a few concessions - what's a few shelters to fund when you've already looted the country for billions?
