"The Catholic tradition may have a stronger hold on its people in some countries than in others, but the tradition is not appreciably weaker than it was 25 years ago. An exception may well be Holland, where it appears on preliminary investigation that the decline continues... it is precisely in Holland where the Curia has been most ruthless in its attempt to restore order and to prevent further loss to the Church. One need only look to Holland to see how counterproductive the Curial agenda is--which is apparently that of the present pope. The goal of less chaos & confusion is surely appropriate. The technique to achieve that goal--the appointment of reactionary & semiliterate bishops--has been counterproductive in Holland. "
