Miracle Detective

I have finished reading “The Miracle Detective” by Randall Sullivan. It was a fascinating book, and I might comment more about it later. But here is an interesting quote from the book:
Hardly anything about the contemporary Catholic Church depressed him more that the fact that the Vatican was now "full of people who worship science," Groeschel said. "The ones who have the brains to say that the emperor has no clothes don’t have the guts to do it. The pope does, but the rest of them toady to the secularists. We’ve got the greatest case of wimpitude I’ve ever seen."
The "Groeschel" mentioned here is Benedict Groeschel who authored the book "A Still, Small Voice" (1993). Whether Sullivan is quoting him accurately, I don't know. Sullivan’s book was largely concerned with the events that happened in Medjugorje.
