This priest is usually right on, but I’m not getting where he is coming from here. Speaking out about the simple Church teaching concerning abortion is only remarkable because of the comparison to what has been going on for the last couple of decades. It’s only barely half of what they should have been doing all along. Maybe I’m misunderstanding what “application of authority” means, but I reckon if any real “application of authority” was going down ol’ “practicing Catholic Scranton Joe” would have been a millstone around Obama’s neck.
Freegards, thanks for all the awesome pings
The USCCB has now reaped what it sowed. Generations of CINO’s who wouldn’t know their way to church let alone have any real understanding of or belief in the Catholic Church. Today I read on Steve Kellmeyer’s blog,The Fifth Column, that given the very good chance of the worst depression ever headed our way, that the parishes that have offered the PC protestantized wishy washy version of Catholicism are the ones who will go under. Fair-weather CINO’s will lower or cease their offerings rather than give up anything they deem important.It’s the ones that offer the EF that will flourish. That in turn will result in what should have been all along, Catholics who live their faith.
I’ve sat through countless homilies that mention being neighborly, “undocumented migrants”, you name the feel-good theology and I’ve had it preached to me. It wasn’t until I started to go to the Latin Mass that I heard what should have been said all along. Abortion is evil, evil surrounds us, and it is a sin to vote for an abortion loving candidate. To do so is to be complicit in murder.
My Archbishop and Bishop are on the list of those who spoke out. Too bad they inherited an archdiocese where CINO’s still rule.
Unfortunately, the stench of Bernardin's legacy is still in the building. It's going to take plenty of Clorox and air freshener to clean up the steaming piles of you know what which he left everywhere.
