Is the Vatican shooting itself in the foot? At a time when the Diocese of Sacramento is going to launch a big campaign to bring fallen away Catholics back to the church, the Vatican is telling Anglicans who don’t agree with their church on ordaining women or a gay bishop, they can join the Catholic Church. The Vatican told the Anglicans they could have married priests and keep some of their services. What is a cradle Catholic to think? Is the Vatican sending a message the Catholic Church is against women and gays? Is the Vatican now embracing fundamentalism and rejecting modernity? Will the Catholic Church split like the Anglican Church? Will there be a liberal Catholic Church and conservative Catholic Church? Will the Vatican become irrelevant and a museum? Big questions for the 21st century. CAROL WALLGREN, Auburn
