I suppose we shouldn’t be that surprised that those who lobby for heterodox and heretical views to be accepted by the Church would visit this gathering. After all, as I reported elsewhere, the Women’s Ordination Conference showed up at the Synod for the Corruption of the Youth last year, as did ACRONYM groups. Does World Youth Day have a point anymore? Is it good optics in the midst of a sexual predator crisis? Is it pure Modernism?
