So, conservative Catholics like sausage and scrapple eh?

At the particular meeting in question, they didn't appear to want any dialogue, since the "conservatives" crowded out all the other speakers.

Ironically, that brings more sympathy to the more moderate and even progressive members of VOTF, who look reasonable in comparison to some guy who has to be hauled out of the meeting.

"If you are looking to believe what the Church believes, then we can readily work together.

This is actually good on Myers' part. Whether or not celibacy should be mandatory for priests is not part of Catholic belief, though it is part of Western Rite practice. If a practice can't stand the light of dialogue, how strong can it be?

"If they want to meet face to face, I give them credit for that," Hudson said when contacted last week at his Washington offices. "I have been a vocal critic of theirs, and it is only fair that if they invite me that I respond."

Maybe Myers ought to meet with them instead of thundering from on high. It's that kind of attitude that the majority of Catholics in the pews are sick to death of.

Sez you. Most of the Catholics I know are sick to death of wishy-washy bishops NOT thundering from on high, like they're supposed to. Personally, I'm sick of bishops who are willing to give stature to dissident groups like VOTF.

Cheers for Bishop Myers.

Do they do that before or after they leave the altar to gladhand at the Kiss of Peace?
