Canada U. While the Pope has tried to downplay expectations for the meeting, many Catholics around the world are expecting some sort of action or plan before it concludes on February But already Catholics have expressed concern that Martel's book, which contains some shocking but unverified allegations, will not only overshadow the church's attempts to protect children, but also essentially link gay scandals with the clergy abuse crisis. In fact, Martel does link homosexuality to the Catholic Church's clergy abuse crisis.

But ultimately the book provides little for either conservative or liberal Catholics to cheer about.
Some stories appear to be well-sourced, like the tale of a late Colombian cardinal who allegedly beat male prostitutes. Others are mere rumors.
And while the author has some genuinely sharp insights about the distance between the Catholic Church's public and private stances on homosexuality, they are too often buried beneath catty quotes and unverifiable anecdotes. At one point in the book, Martel asks himself why one cardinal agreed to talk to him, despite his reputation as a journalist interested in gay culture. Or was it the sense that he was untouchable the source of so many lapses?
As Martel's book hits the market next week, those are questions many of his sources may be asking themselves. Christian later tells Ana that his birth mother was a crack-addicted prostitute.

Fifty Shades Darker ' s indifference to its characters' identities, conflicts, and desires is matched by its indifference to its own cinematic substance. The film's bland impersonality is grotesque; its element of pornography isn't in its depiction of sex but in its depiction of people, of relationships, of situations that, for all their unusualness, bear a strong psychological and societal resonance.
