Novelist’s view of Catholicism

In light of current events, I can’t resist citing this passage from Michael Dibdin’s (R.I.P.) marvelous book “And Then You Die, an Aurelio Zen Mystery” (page 56): 

“You knew where you were in a Catholic culture: up to your neck in lies, evasions, impenetrable mysteries, double-dealing, back-stabbing and underhand intrigues of every kind.”
