Regarding “No fear of the truth,” Sept. 21, page 2:

I appreciated Archbishop Alexander Sample’s comments on the need for truth and his support of a full, thorough and objective investigation. I also agreed with his thoughts on Satan’s role in wanting to divide the church. We should avoid putting ourselves in one camp or the other.

My confusion with the column is in the middle where he speaks of the honesty and integrity of Archbishop Vigano.  It can be misinterpreted that Archbishop Sample has placed himself in a “camp,” which totally contradicts his other statements on the subject. The church is already fighting evil in the sexual assaults and cover-up accounts, but the bigger fear should be of a schism due to the faithful taking sides rather than praying to the Holy Spirit for truth.
