Then, Ross Douthat and New York magazine's Andrew Sullivan debate the Roman Catholic Church's dual crises around sexuality and sexual abuse — and what should be done about them.

Does Ross understand that if you have a stay at home parent scenario like he describes, it is probably because there is a certain degree of affluence that does not necessitate a second income? He is suggesting subsidising the rich.

Jason Newton Ummm, I have a wife that stays home with the children and I am far from rich. My imcome puts us in the lower middle class. I have multiple coworkers that are in the same boat as me. Part of why she stays home is the cost of child care would erase most of the income that she would bring in, but a bigger part is the fact that there is huge value in children being raised by their actual parents as opposed to a day care. It is healthier for the child, the parents, and society as a whole. I think it is about time that value is recognized.

The Catholic Church is the institutionalization of cynicism.
