Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition. And now for something completely different...
Perhaps Paglia would like to revisit the "authoritarian RC church" by approaching "Caritas in veritate":
"Charity in truth, to which Jesus Christ bore witness by his earthly life and especially by his death and resurrection, is the principal driving force behind the authentic development of every person and of all humanity. Love — caritas — is an extraordinary force which leads people to opt for courageous and generous engagement in the field of justice and peace."
