Just read a very interesting piece on Mark Nel’s blog expressing concern at the Southern Cross’s continued propensity to promote controversial & generally negative views about Church Leaders & the teaching they were mandated to receive & pass on faithfully. When there’s nothing else to hit the Church with, there’s always the hardy old chestnut: Denis Hurley was not made. Cardinal because of his views on birth control, women priests, etc. next it’s will be his support for “same sex ‘marriages'” & other outlandish claims. Mark’s blog is on: @marknelza.

Deepest sympathies to the Nkumishe family, as well as the dioceses of Witbank & Pietersburg. May he rest in peace.
