What democracy did Cory restored?

Early this year, some of the devoted "yellows" and their gullible followers have ardently discussed again reviving the plan to turn the late Sen.

"By secular standards, the Catholic Church is a corrupt organization"

Shocking as that statement may seem, that is the conclusion of a well-argued opinion piece (with that title) by Neil McDonald of the Canadian Broadcasting Corp.
