I think that more Catholics denied their faith than Evangelicans did. I should know — I am a Catholic and I admire what the Evangelicans did. Most bishops were afraid to speak up strongly for the faith in fear of the IRS.

I imagine that at least a few bishops woke up this Wednesday morning, November 5, to the realization they are now paper figureheads of the "Blue Catholic Church." Even many of the so-called strong anti-abortion statements in the last month or two by some bishops came too late in the game; and never went far enough in discplining Catholic politicians. It was as if they were posing for Rome, as if to say half-heartedly "look, see, we are doing something!" We need a house cleaning.

After 30 to 40 years of lax pastoral leadership, kumbaya and guitar masses, holding hands, 'seamless garment' theology, mamby pamby leadership (e.g. failure to name names and excommunicate Catholic politicians), etc.; it should have been no surprise that a large segment of the Roman Catholic Church in this country has now turned "Blue".

We can only hope that Rome will look in horror upon the state of the Church in the U.S.; and become more vigorous and aggressive in appointing and promoting strong, active shepherds - and dispose of the bishops who have tolerated the wolves within the flock. < / Rant >

We were discussing CINO’s and bishop accountability on another thread:

I’m running out of non-cuss words to describe what I feel concerning traitorous, heretical CINO’s. Stuck on disgusted at the moment, but horrified got a run for its money. Crushed that I have family that voted for Obama. I’m too pissed for saddened.
