We need to make a distinction between the Catholic Church and the individual bishops who hold office from time to time. What the author is positing — and I support him — is that for the past 50 years the Catholic bishops in the U.S. have departed from true Catholic teaching to find a quick fix in Democrat politics. The body of the bishops, however, has a constantly changing membership. Today’s bishops are a different body than those of years past. It is to be hoped that today’s bishops wake up and reject the accommodation of their recent predecessors and return to the strong and vocal body that is their historical character.
I agree with your distinction. But from what I have seen from the current crop of bishops, I don’t hold out much hope for too many changes. When I see excommunications of pro-abortion, pro-homosexual Catholic in Name Only politicians, then I will hold out hope for a brighter tomorrow from the Church.
But Rush reading this on his show today, and thus giving it a wider play, reminds me of the old 'Patrick Kennedy' defense: "that woman walked into the bar with me, ergo she deserved to be raped."
Give us a list of people who we can rely on to speak for the Catholic Church. Apparently according to people like you their is none.
The only reason people listen to these guys is that they wear the red cape. And if they don’t speak FOR the church the certainly cloth themselves with the AUTHORITY of it when they speak.
