I have no idea what is meant by the blogger's final line: "You wouldn't be dead for quids," but I certainly understood a great deal that went before in this report from a meeting of Australia's National Council of Priests. The priests are rather unrestrained in their calls for reform and in their critique of the church's handling of any number of issues.
One of the speakers was Fr. Donald Cozzens, writer in residence at John Carroll University in Cleveland, who's written extensively on the clerical culture and its problems.
There's an earlier entry about the conference and more on Cozzens' presentation here.
