Written shortly before the current scandal broke upon the Roman Catholic Church, Rose's book seems almost prophetic as he documents the systematic rejection of pious, orthodox seminary applicants in many dioceses and the encouragement of questionable attitudes and agendas. Rose (Ugly As Sin), who was editor of St. Catherine Review for seven years, is the author of numerous articles, essays, and books that question the wisdom of contemporary liberal Catholicism. Here, he discusses the causes of the chronic priest shortage, including the misuse of psychological screening and what appears to be blatant discrimination against the kind of young men who were once considered ideal candidates for the vocation. He gives a disturbing glimpse behind the scenes that may go far in explaining the church's present difficulties. Based primarily on interviews, the book is carefully footnoted and contains a bibliography of sources cited and consulted. Highly recommended for anyone interested in this prominent topic, and for public and academic libraries. C. Robert Nixon, MLS, Lafayette, IN

This book is great Investigative journalism something which we sorely lack in our media today.
While one might think the book focuses primarily on the sex scandal and the gay subculture the primary thrust of the book has to be about the liberal, anti-church dissenters that have invaded the church hierarchy, dioceses, seminaries and liberal laity which have metastasized themselves in local parishes and educational and liturgical programs.
While Michael Rose work acknowledges the present priest shortage in the US, the data clearly shows, beyond a doubt, it is all man-made, contrived, by the wicked and diabolical within the church. These corrupt bishops, priest, seminary rectors, clip-haired, feminazi-nuns and progressive laity exacerbated the pedophile/ephebophilia sexual abuse, injuring thousands of children by fomenting their homosexual subculture. Additionally, their aberrant ideology created four times as many victims by turning away good, pious, orthodox men away from a priestly vocation that would not embrace their homo-heresy agenda, causing deep psychological scars upon these men. Their agenda of reshaping of the church to include, woman ordination, married priest, contraception, abortion, rejection of chastity and celibacy and a plethora of liturgical abuses is contrary to 2000 plus years of church tradition and the teachings of Christ.
Time to purge our church; dioceses, seminaries, chanceries, educational institutions, and parishes of these abhorrent individuals.
Goodbye Good Men is a well written, researched book!
