Apologia for Church in Vatican Radio gun rights attack rings hollow

Cardinal Dolan will be heading to Rome to elect a new pope.
Yes, yes, Cardinal.
Jesus himself always tried to stay politically active and pass laws /s
BTW ALL, FR is acting wonky again here.
He appears to be sadly naive in regard to the political agenda at the root of this (in the same way various bishops were gullibly in favor of Obamacare before the actual impact of the law on the Church became apparent). Amazing how many churchmen still fail to see the connection between creeping government control, socialism and the consequent loss of religious freedom.
Frankly, I wish bishops would keep a low profile in regard to topics unrelated to Church teaching. Often they do more harm than good when they opine on political matters.
Is there a good reason this freak has not been removed from his position? Is this one of those jobs where you can’t be fired?
Just toss him out and be done with it.
Just proves that all the Catholic Bishops/Cardinals are crypto-Marxists.
I have found no common ground at all with Barack Hussein Obama.
Obama wants to tax the rich at a higher rate for “fairness” even if that means less tax collected. I feel no envy toward those with higher incomes than my own.
Obama wants to compel religious people to violate their religious values by forcing them to pay for abortions for employees, in violation of the First Amendment and of the most fundamental of human rights. I feel respect for the sincere religious beliefs of others so long as those believers do not actively interfere with the rights of others.
Obama wants to punish success and reward failure, transferring wealth from those who produce to those who choose not to be productive “when you spread the wealth around . . .” I believe that those who produce wealth help others by virtue of their success and generate more jobs when they spend the wealth they have created, and even if they didn’t help others, it’s still their wealth and not mine.
Obama wants a federal takeover of our medical system. I believe that freedom is always more efficient than a command economy.
Obama wants to “end” the wars in Iraq, in Afghanistan, and on terror. I want to win those wars so that they end in victory and not defeat.
I sometimes think that if I agreed with Obama on even one issue, I would automatically reconsider my position. To agree with someone who is universally wrong and usually evil would cause a great deal of concern. I don’t know if I would change my opinion if I found Obama agreeing with me - it’s never happened in more than four terrible years of watching him destroy my country.
If he doesn’t remember, at least he could read some history.
Here is a new thread featuring a new essay and YouTube video titled “Democide: Socialism, Tyranny, Guns and Freedom.” The video has had 12,000 views in the first two days.
I helped to produce the video. It’s an effort to lift the debate from Newtown “small ball” to the big leagues of state democide, where these efforts at “reasonable and commonsense” gun control laws always lead to death by the million in the end.
Sorry,Cardinal...this is one thing I won’t be rendering unto Caesar.
Yeah, well Cardinal Dolan, that assclown will force you to abort babies...and keep you from teaching that sodomy is a sin....
So you better consider thanking God there IS a second amendment.
The left has learned from the Soviet experience. This time they are simply going to co-opt the church and make it their willing handmaiden.
With all respect to my freedom loving Catholic brothers in Christ...
As a radical Calvinist....why should I give a rats testicle what a capon priest for a clown costumed gang of rascals and thieves thinks? In the old world, these guys’ predecessors tried to burn my fathers at the stake.
But oh wait. My grandaddies were armed with BOTH the sword and the Word. Christian liberty and political liberty then ensued quite beyond the control of kings and cardinals.
The Catholic church as an organization has NEVER been an advocate for true liberty. Quite the opposite. Blind ignorant obedience to Pope and to Caesar has been their demand since Constantine.
Had the Catholic hierarchy caught and burned Luther and the German landsmen who supported him, we would still be bending knee to men, buying indulgences, hearing Latin masses memorized by illiterate priests, and if caught with a heretic common vernacular language Bible, would be officially damned then flayed.
Let Mr. Dolan lick what boots he may....and screw him.
Any Catholic that stands for liberty and arms is a brother. Any who do not....a foe. It is a duty we owe to our fathers and our God.
Just because he hears confessions that doesn’t mean criminals are going to confess gun ownership to the state.
His eminence better lay off the Absolut-ion..
Hence why i left the catholic church a long time ago.
Another example of what you get when “religious leaders” stray from the calling and get involved in unrelated areas - support for the Godless side of the aisle that they can subjugate the believers. One of the main reasons I decided to eschew religion and to go non-denominational and stick with Biblical teachings undiluted by those who lounge in a life of ease in their religious “callings”.
I would suggest that the Bishop do something that lies in his own competence - deny the Sacraments to pro-abort politicians. Ratifying anything that Obama says make Dolan look silly. He needs to fight the fire that's closest to him - the broad based and relentless attack underway against First Amendment religious liberty.
