NY Priest: Dolan Loses Moral Voice at Met
Church Militant ^ | 5/14/18 | Stephen Wynne

NEW YORK (ChurchMilitant.com) - A Staten Island priest is slamming the archdiocese of New York for embracing a scandalous exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

"Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination" purports to show "fashion's ongoing engagement with the devotional practices and traditions of Catholicism" by blending Catholic images and sexuality.

In a letter to the New York Post last week, Fr. Robert Repenning blasted the New York archdiocese's accommodation of the sacrilege, warning it signals a collapse of moral authority.

Echoing the frustration of faithful Catholics across the country, Fr. Repenning wrote:

What has become of the Catholic Church when it officially endorses self-hatred?

The Archdiocese of New York was once the moral voice of Catholic America. Now it's virtually silent about morality and has opened wide the doors to secularism and embraced the world of high finance.

It is a scandal that any cleric would attend a $30,000-per-ticket event.

It's even more scandalous to have our sacred vestments, art and figures mocked by the Hollywood elite.

But today’s “art” and “entertainment” industries are just so moral and ethical and honest and holy, aren’t they?

Or are they immoral, unethical, exhibit and profit by all of the seven deadly sins, and are dishonest and wholly hell-bound?

This charlatan in a priest’s robe has fallen under the spell of the wicked, the fornicators and the Godless. He needs to be defrocked.

Cardinal Dolan is not a priest but a self serving executive
