The bishops in Baltimore were stymied in their attempt to pass meaningful and effective measures to impose their own sexual morality guidelines on themselves. The Holy Father shot down their planned votes on two measures to police themselves by asking them not to act.

Stephen P. White in The Catholic Thing makes the point that the Pope, in effect, humiliated our bishops, and I'm inclined to agree. He also says the Pope may be angered by their lack of support for him in reaction to the explosive charges levied by Abp. Carlo Viganò. It is true that they have rightly called for an investigation of Viganò in connection with the McCarrick malfeasance. Their call to Rome for releasing all documents in connection with McCarrick was voted down. I think we can be certain that Pope Francis doesn't want anybody who believes Viganò to get their hands on any documents at all.

Recognizing the connection between homosexuality and preying upon minors is something the bishops can act on without permission from Rome. They can begin by shutting down the James Martin, S.J. road show.
