Yesterday, I had the unfortunate experience of both of these propositions being proposed in the homily tagging on to the penitential prayers of healing. The poor diminishing faithful. The shepherds given still covering their tails. Hearing the words of Jeremiah and fondly hoping for such a bold and fearless leader.
“First — That the problem has been completely controlled by the “Dallas Charter for Child Protection” — which sets boundaries on interactions between clergy and Church workers and minors — adopted by the Bishops in 2002. To the contrary, the Ruth Institute study shows a disturbing recent increase in the number of sexual incidents reported since 2010.
Second — That the abuse problem in the Church has nothing to do with sexual orientation. To the contrary, the Ruth Institute study shows a strong correlation between the percentage of self-described homosexuals in the Catholic priesthood and incidence of sexual abuse of minors by the clergy.”
Dolan is not mental, he is not crazy, he is not out of touch. The bishops knows the hand that feeds them, and they will not bite it.
“Steve Doocy: “Have the rules changed inside the Catholic Church, because it used to be pretty black and white about ‘yes, no,’ now you’re saying, ‘Come back.'”
Cardinal Dolan: “Yes, you would say, yeah, you would say that it used to be pretty, pretty clean that an abortion would cause the excommunication not only of the one who did it, people who encourage it and the one who had it. The Church, in the last 50 years, beginning with Pope John Paul II and especially intensified under Pope Francis, has said, ‘I don’t know if that’s Gospel values here’ because mercy trumps everything.”
And this is where we can freely say: Dolan’s mental.
What he said is simply incorrect. Here is canon law — existing, on the books right now — canon law 1398: “A person who procures a completed abortion incurs a latae sententiae excommunication” — meaning, kill the unborn baby and you are automatically excommunicated as well as the “doctor” other personnel and friends or family who conspired in the killing.”
This is a shepherd. “The German prelate also discussed another aspect of the petition, namely the punishment of those clergymen who abuse young and vulnerable adults such as seminarians or novices. Müller pointed to the “abuse committed against seminarians” that “should not be underestimated: it is an enormous sin, a crime against the dignity of these men, but also against the parents who entrust their children to the priesthood, the bishop, the seminary.” A bishop who fails on this level “is an enormous scandal,” he added. “ https://www.lifesitenews.com/blogs/cardinals-endorse-campaign-to-stop-homosexual-networks-in-church
What about Op-Ed pieces smearing the boys by bishops? Investigate, prosecute, sanction. https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2019/01/kenton-county-prosecutor-weve-already-issued-subpoenas-and-search-warrants-against-online-abusers-of-covington-school-children-video/
Wolves Bigots come in many guises. Some wear mitres .
“Rabbi Aryeh Spero, an acclaimed author and theologian, said the entire event involving the boys was “a contrived and false episode” staged to make a scene and that it was “pounced on by people who hate religious white Catholics and are always on the look-out to demonize Catholics.”
“These people are bigots,” Spero told the president of the Catholic League, Dr. William Donohue.”
“The apology came after Sandmann’s family hired lawyer L. Lin Wood, who according to the Washington Post, “often [seeks] eye-popping damages for those he believes have been libeled or slandered in the press.”
Sandmann family attorney Todd McMurtry told reporters on Thursday that Wood is “committed to bringing justice to 16-year-old Nick Sandmann and his family.”
“The Lavender Mafia want to have a comfortable life. They don’t want to do battle with anyone who threatens their position. That is why they will compromise on almost anything. There are atrocities being committed against young men in the orders, especially the Franciscans and the Dominicans, who are molested by their superiors, and they are told to shut up by their bishops. Archbishop Paetz is a perfect example. This is extremely atrocious because a lot of these young men are very dedicated and orthodox. They love the Church and want to serve the Church. On a psychological level, their whole world can be devastated by such an act. They can literally go crazy. They could have been great brothers in the orders and great priests but they end seeking psychological help. They are a wreck, basically.” https://www.churchmilitant.com/news/article/cm-exclusive-fr.-dariusz-oko-on-the-homoheresy
@ “Mr. Wiegel is talking, and asking us to take an approach, that is (wittingly or unwittingly), the talk and approach designed by ex-Cardinal McCarrick, the arch-liar, homosexual predator and post-Christian fraud.
Our problem is what the National Review Board says it is, and NOT what McCarrick says it is, which is repeated above by Mr. Wiegel.
True Grasp of Problem (per our Church’s own 2002-04 National Review Board and it’s Chairman Gov. Frank Keating): (1) homosexual abuse (82% of cases) of teenage boys by homosexual predators in the priesthood; (2) aided and abetted by living US Bishops and Cardinals (like Mahony and Wuerl McCarrick) who systematically covered up this abuse, witholding information from and opposing and thwarting the Review Board in getting to the root cause of the problem: protection of Bishops and priests committing sodomy or fornication or adultery.
False Label of Problem – the very label crafted by a McCarrick in 2002-04 to deny and thwart the Truth (above): “sex abuse of young people (pedophilia).
When and if Mr. Wiegel stops using, wittingly or unwittingly, the McCarrick propaganda, he can then joun Gov. Keating and Judge Anne Burke in their true grasp of the problem, and perhaps help fix it.”
