Christiane  Florin - And Yet!


Why the hell am I so patient with this Church?

"The Church is not all about misuse of power, sexual abuse and misogyny. There are so many people involved who want to do good deeds."

Hearing this sentence makes Christiane Florin mostly lose her patience. Yes, there are people wanting to do good. But they as well have stayed quiet for too long over misuse of power, sexual abuse and misogyny. Maybe because they did not want to break their idyll of home. For Catholicism is more than a belief system, it is also a feeling of home. Victims of sexual violence or of magisterial punishment as well as analysts of the apparatus disturb these feelings.

However: Thereby, the gullible ones become accomplices. They become accomplices that cannot defend themselves against an authoritarian system that keeps believers small. And Yet! Why I Try to Stay Catholic is an accusation, self-accusation and confession to a longing.

• Personal, provoking, disturbing

• Provocative subjects: abuse scandals, female priesthood, misuse of power
