In the case of a politician this flagrantly heretical, this defiant of the moral law, the automatic “you’ve excommunicated yourself” cop-out isn’t worth a WET DAMN.
A flagrant public heretic deserves an equally flagrant, equally public, completely unequivocal EXCOMMUNICATION. Bell book and Candle...the old fashioned way.
This traitor to the Christian faith runs around like a pious crap *scandalizing the faithful*. WHAT THE HELL DON’T YOU GET ABOUT THAT YOUR EXCELLENCIES????? Every liberal POS newspaper positively fetishizes printing the “fact” that he is Catholic in every story.
EXCOMMUNICATE HIM!!!! And if Bishop Hubbard won’t do it let’s have ROME PUT HIS CATHEDRAL UNDER THE INTERDICT until he does.
Dammit, this makes me so mad. Sorry for the shouting.
Hubbard is terrible and has been terrible for all of his reign. He was one of the “boy bishops,” the very young [raving liberal] bishops appointed after Vatican II. I think he’s pretty close to retirement and IIRC, the Pope has already accepted his letter.
Cleaning up the abuses in that diocese is going to be a long, hard slog.
