Skip to comments.3 Words That Drive "Progressive" Catholics Crazy (Catholic Caucus)
Posted on 01/25/2010 9:55:04 AM PST by NYer
I’ve been running a Catholic blog for a few years now and have inadvertently come across certain words and phrases that just drive self described “progressive” Catholics crazy. Tweeters have been doing this a while concerning politics but I thought we could have some fun here coming up with 3 word phrases that just unhinge “progressive” Catholics. Take a look at my suggestions and then I encourage you to add your own in the combox.
1) Traditional Anglican Communion
2) The Catechism states…
3) Abortion is murder
4) Communion on Tongue
5) Scott Hahn said…
6) “Caritas in Veritate”
7) Archbishop Raymond Burke
8) Latin Mass Society
9)Ineffable. Ineffable. Ineffable.
10)Three letters C. D. F.
11) For the many
12) An Apostolic Visitation
13) Hermeneutic of continuity
14) Mary Ann Glendon
15) Mandatory retirement age
Bonus: God Bless America
I’d love to hear your suggestions as well.

Hi, new incoming Catholic here, still in training. Can someone point me to either a quick answer or a link explaining why we conservative Catholics are supposed to favor receiving the communion wafer on the tongue?
Natural family planning.
For us men
Pope Pius [insert any number] (they cringe at all of them)
while our current Pope has a personal preference for communion on the tongue, he as also stated while being interviewed that he does not want to be “fussy about it”.
heterodoxy is dissent
Definitely true! Father Greg spoke about Humanae Vitae, no artificial contraception, and NFP last Sunday. I think a few people were squirming in the pews, but I made sure to thank him for his homily after Mass to counteract any hate email or phone calls he might get on Monday!
"It could also be noted that the (Pope's) preference for such form of distribution which, without taking anything away from the other one, better highlights the truth of the real presence in the Eucharist, helps the devotion of the faithful, and introduces more easily to the sense of mystery. Aspects which, in our times, pastorally speaking, it is urgent to highlight and recover."
I myself would add that it makes desecration of the Holy Eucharist by the ignorant and evil more difficult.
Read the Bible?
I can do it in two: Papal infallibility
