What the Hell's wrong with the USCCB?: USCCB supports Kagan

Really, there is no need for this 'collegiality' nonsense at all. We don't need any kind of council period-- the bishops answer to Rome, period and they should generally look to the throne of Peter for guidance, and not go 'declaring' things.

What I was suggesting wasn't collegiality, but a chain of command which leads in an obvious pyramid to the Pope, just like a smooth-running military. Getting rid of the middleman entirely, in my opinion, wouldn't work. The Pope can't manage each bishop individually, but if he's not afraid to actually exercise his office, he can easily manage a number of national councils. Establish a primate (like the historical Archbishop of Canterbury) and a number of other influential bishops, and decisions can trickle down more quickly than the other methods (no middleman, or the bloated, limp-wristed bureaucracy that is the USCCB).
