(Oh, I forgot. Another cafeteria-style 'catholic.'
This Bishop is truly a man of God. If only we had more like him.
If everyone who was pro-choce and/or uses contraceptives stayed away from church, their membership would be zip.
"... whatever... you know... that means, in Priest-speak. Cripes, I'm so freakin' hung over, most Sunday mornings, I can practically see Mary Jo wavin' at me from the bar stool a good two, three waitresses over, an'... an'... hey, you gonna eat that onion? I haven't had any breakfast yet." ;)
I’m confused on this one.
What purpose did Kennedy have in revealing this in a newspaper article? Since the bishop isn’t talking, how do we know its even true?
Second, the story says that the bishop is “ultra orthodox”. What does the “ultra” mean. Someone is either orthodox or heterodox, what does the modifier “ultra” really indicate about Tobin.
It is about time that more of these Catholic leaders stand up this way.
Religious Leaders Call for Civil Disobedience if Laws Dont Respect Faith
Saturday, November 21, 2009 2:52 PM
A formidable coalition of 150 Catholic, Orthodox and evangelical leaders are calling on Christians in a new manifesto to reject secular authority and even engage in civil disobedience if laws force them to accept abortion, same-sex marriage and other ideas that betray their religious beliefs. ...
Most of the Kennedys don.t follow the rules of the Catholic Church, according to all reports.
This Kennedy is no exception and some one poured chlorine in the gene pool of the Kennedys prior to this guy’s Birth.
"Bishop Tobin has never addressed matters relative to public officials receiving Holy Communion with pastors of the diocese," spokesman Michael K. Guilfoyle told the paper in an e-mailed statement.
This sounds more like a typical Kennedy Klan half-truth uttered by Patrick and calculated to cast himself as a victim and gain undeserved public sympathy. He clearly didn't expect anyone from the diocese to speak out and refute his lie publicly.
Thank you, Heavenly Father for giving us Bishops with a backbone!!!
I think we will see more Catholic Bishops mirrorig Bishop Thomas Tobin.
It only takes one to get it started. Expect more.
We need more good bishops like this. We certainly need to support them in prayer...REGULARLY!
We also need to pray consistently for the continued cleansing of our Church, starting with ourselves. ;-)
Good for Bishop Tobin! I’m sure Patrick will ignore him, because he’s just that arrogant that he doesn’t think the rules should apply to him, but he’ll have to answer to God for that.
We would be blessed indeed if all bishops had this much spine.
