Roman Catholic bloggers and friends alike wonder if journalists actually read the document in question past the first three lines.
How US Roman Catholic seminaries really fare, however, is none of my concern. What I am particularly perplexed by is this line from the report:
"It is, unfortunately, rare for American seminarians to have a proper grounding in Latin, which, as well as being of use for the liturgy, is indispensable if students are to have the ability to consult primary theological sources."
...Latin? Primary theological sources?
