Putting the smackdown on the homosexual gestapo
Cardinal Francis George of Chicago, setting the pace.
Says Mark Shea, "What are they putting in the bishops' water these days? There seems to be an unprecedented number of vertebrae growing all of a sudden."
Of course, the utter lack of a united front by the bishops, which the 'Rainbow Sash' gestapo point out in this article, is almost as painful to see as no front at all, as it presents the image of a divided, uncertain, and ambivalent Church of Christ. We're seeing a widening fissure in the American Catholic Church, and everything seems to depend upon who's wearing the mitre in your diocese at this particular moment. I suppose that's the way it's always been in the history of the Church, of course; we saw that in with the Peter-Paul dispute in Antioch (Gal. 2:11-21). One can hardly blame the Son of God for picking an ineffective model of governance when He appointed twelve apostles to lead His Church.
