OUT OF LEFT FIELD

Next pope must open up the church

Paul Donovan cites 'a deep chauvinism that seems to have infected the whole edifice'

(CNN) — The announcement of the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI came as a bolt from the blue to the world but not a moment too soon for many Catholics.

The Catholic Church has continued to march backwards under Pope Benedict, seeming at times to be in a state of perpetual denial, whether the issue be that of child abuse, birth control, homosexuality or the role of women.

At the heart of the church there lies a deep chauvinism that seems to have infected the whole edifice.

What's your biggest concern in wake of Pope Benedict resignation?
