Over at WDTPRS, Fr. John Zuhlsdorf comments:

The Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith’s process is slow and patient and respectful, to a fault, when certain people and their odd theological notions come under study. It takes a lot to get scrutinized by the CDF in the first place, but once you are in their system, they go over and over what you write and give you chances to explain and correct. If it gets to a point where someone refuses to be corrected, unpleasant things result.

I believe the Church will survive without this dissident priest, and it can do just fine with those who agree with him too.

I am not a RC but if he doesn’t believe what the RC Church believes, he should be removed.

questioning Church teachings on contraception and on homosexuality.

Hmmm ... So, he supports multiple forms of sodomy ... I wonder what his view of abortion might be.

Oh, this priest is a big hero to all those Catholics who THINK they are more Catholic than the Pope and the Church, because they believe that not allowing women to be priests is an injustice, and by the way, homosexuals should be allowed to marry in the Church as well, because Jesus loved everybody, and anyway He didn’t say homosexuality was wrong. (Channeling the liberal Catholics)

This lad is playing with fire.

As members of a religious congregation Redemptorists embrace the evangelical counsels, taking the three traditional religious vows of poverty, chastity and obedience. Poverty means that all possessions are held in common and that no member may accumulate wealth. Chastity means more than abstaining from sexual activity and its purpose is to make the religious totally available for service; it is also a sign that only God can completely fill the human heart. For a member of a religious congregation, obedience is not slavishly doing what one is told by the superior but being attentive to God’s will by prayerfully listening to the voice of the person in charge. For the Redemptorist, the three vows challenge those values presented as being important by modern day society. Recognising that the living out of the three traditional vows can be truly challenging, each Redemptorist takes a fourth vow, that of perseverance.

Wisdom dictates one does not take, or violate, such vows lightly.(Matt 5:33-37). Good luck with that, Tony.

Eventually I hope the church creates something like an Anglican ordinariate, a personal ordinariate but in reverse.

It would be an acknowledgement that because they have embraced liberal Anglican doctrines, they are no longer Catholic, but effectively Anglican. The mildest form of excommunication, I suppose, but on as friendly terms as possible, just as long as they no longer identify themselves as being Catholic.

There are plenty of Anglican priests heading in the direction of Rome. Maybe he should hit the road and head toward that rainbow flag.
