No you are not too sensitive.
I saw that earlier posting too.
There is a problem with a handful of clerics in the Mid East particularly, a problem that the Vatican has yet to really fix. (Similar with the problem with certain American politicians claiming to be “RC” and pushing abortion on a mass scale like Pelosi... ) And it was the same with some critics of the Vatican in the 1930’s and 40’s for “not speaking up enough” against the Nazi mass murders. (Although the Vatican did save several thousand lives in a quieter manner.)
I have given this much thought over the years. It could possibly be that the Holy See just actually does not have the power to keep so many errant souls in check??? (It sure would be a big job for the Pope to reprove so many clerics and politicians and...and.... )
I really don’t know. Meanwhile, we are stuck with these “statements” that go against Biblical or Church teachings... each year we seem to get these or similar statements, largely from the same sources I think, and it is most distressing ...
I certainly don’t have a problem bashing misguided (and sometimes evil) priests. My problem is with some (I said SOME!) Evangelicals here who wish to drive a wedge between themselves and Catholics and are using anti-semitism as the stake.
The only problem I see is this guy holds the rank of "Major Archbishop" and the title of "Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem". Given the Christians are less than 2% of the population of Jerusalem, and most of them are Eastern Orthodox or protestant (and even among the Catholics, which are around 1% of Jerusalem's population, most are from the Melkite Greek Catholic Church or Maronite Church, NOT the latin-rite Roman Catholic Church), it makes little sense to give this guy so much clout. The only reason they'd really need a "Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem" is an honorary title bestowed because of the city's historic ties to the founding of Christianity and the Catholic Church. I could understand if this guy was "Monsignor Fouad Twal, honorary Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem" and merely a figurehead, but not making him a "Major Archbishop".
As for Fouad Twal himself being pro-Palestian statehood and/or anti-Jewish, that couldn't be helped. You're about as likely to find a pro-Jewish Palestinian Christian as finding a Sinn Fein member who is against Irish independence.
