3. They haven't stood behind his statements


The hierarchy has been in the press. They are contrite, take blame, and say they are embarrassed - and clearly in the wrong.

I don't know what else they will do. He's really an outlier - though he gets a lot of press.

FWIW, while I have a great deal of affection for the church - I'm not Catholic anymore and I'm not (and never was) in the know.

You are right that his statements should be responded to - but my only point is that the press he gets is out-sized. While he must speak for some in the church (he does have his little platform), it's an exceptionally small circle. Clearly, he's no mouthpiece for the Vatican. The cardinals and bishops do not stand behind his statements. They have been clear in their views.
