First the video, then I'll comment below. Click here if you can't see embedded video.
Here is the New York Archdiocesan blog post to which Voris refers. I trust you've noticed that the domain is that of the Archdiocese of New York, as well as the logo at the top of the post. Voris uses the word "insulting", with "insulting the intelligence" to politely describe the lies being promulgated in Mechmann's reply. That's right! I said lies! I can understand Voris's hesitation about being up front about the nature of Mechmann's - no, rather the Archdiocese's - statements, given the dust-up he had to endure from the Archdiocese of Detroit. However, I have no bones whatsoever about stating the following observation.
In this blog post, the Archdiocese of New York deliberately tells lies. Such is a sin against the Eighth Commandment. Whether the sin is mortal or venial I cannot fathom. But there is sin - unless, of course, Mechmann et al are so idiotic that culpability is reduced. In that case, they have no business occupying positions of responsibility.
I read that blog post, of course. There is much slop and error contained therein. I await Voris' future installments. If there are anomalies upon which he doesn't touch, I will.
Until then, keep after Cardinal Dolan to rescind the invitation.
Pray for us, St. Ignatius
