Well, this is the second time during Christmas week that a fellow freeper has tried to show that Catholics are anti-Israel and anti-Semitic. (I’m not saying this particular freeper who posted this.) Maybe I’m too sensitive.
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 ...
