It's because they never DO anything about these "Catholics". Why not put Kerry, Biden, Kennedy, et al on the "you ain't goin" list and see what would happen? This has been going on for years and no response from the Catholic church.

I would love to see Kennedy ex communicated for killing babies and Mary Jo, but he probably gives millions to the church. Why not make a big splash right now during the convention about Biden? It won't change because the Church isn't serious.

If Catholics started to insist that you BE Catholic, the church would self destruct.

So this is the reason why in orthodox and traditional diocese the faith is growing?

Sorry, the time of Kumbaya Catholic is over. People are flocking to traditional churches, including my own that does not allow Altar Girls and includes kneeling for communion with intinction and six FULL masses on Sunday.

We are sitting in the middle of Catholic liberal heaven. My old church lists 1300 families and the church was never full for two masses. Sitting on their education committee I heard them cry over losing families (2/3 did not contribute, 3/4 did not attend past the time kiddies made 1st communion). When I sugggested they look to the parish that was growing (the one I am in now) they said that there is “something in the water” over there and ignored me.

In the meantime, our parish has tripled in size in the last five years and is still growing. We have built a new main and classrooms. When Catholics insist that we BE Catholic, we grow by leaps and bounds.

Times are changing. We will see what happens with Pelosi and her faux pas. The Bishops are sounding out. Maybe this time, we WILL see action.
