Canonization kind of adds a new element to the "blame among dead people" thing.

I don't think anyone on FE believes either a or b in this case.

But personally, I feel uncomfortable speaking ill of dead family members even though I certainly recognize what problems their sins and weaknesses have caused in my family.  There is a line between critique and disrespect in that case that applies in some sense to our Church family as well.

Call me crazy, but my "respect" for anyone who is doing this is pretty well...doesn't exist right now. 

And the doublespeak out of the Vatican nowadays isn't helping.
