For the better part of a half century, the New York Times, and similarly situated purveyors of news and opinion, have eagerly awaited the Great Catholic Cave-In: that blessed moment when, at long last, the Catholic Church, like many other Christian communities, would concede that the sexual revolution had gotten it right all along and would adjust its teaching and practice to suit.

Pope, Priest, Bishop, Pastor, Apostle, Sunday School Teacher. . .whatever. . .if they aren’t in line with the Holy Bible then then they are “out of line” with God’s Inspired Truth.

I was told yesterday by a pastor that was going to preach on Revelation and the signs of the end times that his congregation told him to “chill out”)

Me too. Then again, we're getting our news in sound bites from the MSM, which, as George says, is dying to announce the great Catholic Capitulation.
I suspect hes teasing the worlds lost fish into biting the hook.
