GREENVILLE, South Carolina, July 31, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) A U.S. parish priest was planning to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Humanae Vitae on the weekend by preaching on the great encyclical, but then the scandal of ex-Cardinal McCarrick made him change his plan.
So instead Fr. Jay Scott Newman gave a must-hear homily blasting priests and bishops who have rejected Humanae Vitae, both by teaching false doctrine and through their own evil conduct.
The treason of Cardinal Theodore McCarrick is a damnable abomination, he said, but while McCarricks sins are appalling, they are merely the crimes of one man . Worse is the systemic corruption of priests and bishops who do not believe what the Church teaches but continue to preach anyway.
McCarrick was recently removed from public ministry over a credible allegation he molested an altar boy 50 years ago. Whistleblowers and victims have come forward to describe McCarricks predatory behavior and the disregard they received from Church officials when reporting it. Pope Francis accepted McCarricks resignation from the College of Cardinals this weekend.
Newman described how, after promising at their ordinations to teach the Gospel as it has been revealed by God and is communicated by the Church, corrupt priests behave rather differently.
...With a wink and a nudge they encourage cynical disregard for the revealed truth of Gods eternal Word, Newman continued, and create a new religion of their own devising, a faith that will not disturb the indulgence of their ambition and lust, and which encourages the people of God to disregard the solemn and sacred truths about love, marriage, sex, and the gift of children.

I guess that makes the Pope’s actions the worst of all!
Can we please get a real one now. This joke has gone on long enough.
A writing campaign to our parish bishops and the US Conference of Catholic Bishops is in order and necessary.
The creation of all these so called Conferences was never a bright idea, in the first place, but a tool to implement a heavy handed method of COMMUNITY ORGANIZING, pressuring bishops to work not for the people but for THE FIRM.
This is very good to hear but long overdue.
