We Are "Taliban Catholics"?

Apparently that's what some in the progressive/liberal circles of the Church are dubbing us faithful, traditional Catholics who actually live by the teachings of the Church.  The Vortex clip elaborates on this below.  In the clip, Voris states that "out of charity" he won't name the journalist who coined this term "taliban Catholic".

Not finding myself in agreement with Voris's concept of charity on this occasion, I will go ahead and name this individual.  It wasn't difficult to determine that; all I had to do was google that term (and Voris must have known we'd do that!).  The delightful fellow is John Allen, a "reporter" from the National Catholic Reporter (no surprise there!).  Here's Father Z's take on the issue - I love that picture!  After a little more web-searching, I think I determined the identity of the priest to whom Voris was referring.  He is Fr Norm Tanck of Blessed Kateri Church in the Diocese of Rochester (NY).  Here's a link to the offending homily.  If Fr Tanck is not the priest whom Voris had in mind, then the "taliban Catholic" phrase is becoming very popular.

CORRECTION: I now have reason to believe that Voris may have been referring to Fr Thomas Rosica, a dissident Canadian priest. Please visit this Lifesite News page for more details.

  1. Just for the record, we may have Father Rosica now, but he was born in Rochester, New York!
