"Catholic In Good Standing" Label - A Tactic Of Progressives

In today's Vortex, Michael Voris talks not so much of that phrase as it was recently used in New York, but how it's being utilized to officially ostracize traditional Catholics and other good people of morals.  He cites as an example the treatment meted out to Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch.

Listen to him as he speculates what one must do to be considered a "Catholic not in good standing" (starting at 6:36).  Must he/she be a "homosexual abortionist who lives with his gay partner".  Then he says, "no".  I'm sure Voris wasn't thinking of what happened a year ago this past Lent at St. John Neumann in Gaithersburg, but Father Marcel Guarnizo was essentially booted from the Archdiocese of Washington for denying Holy Communion to someone who fulfilled all the hypothetical criteria (except that she was not an abortionist - probably "pro-choice", though).

  1. I listened to a sermon about this type of thing about a year ago...

    "The most evident mark of God's anger, and the most terrible castigation He can inflict upon the world, is manifest when He permits His people to fall into the hands of a clergy who are more in name than in deed, priests who practice the cruelty of ravening wolves rather than the charity and affection of devoted shepherds. They abandon the things of God to devote themselves to the things of the world and, in their saintly calling of holiness, they spend their time in profane and worldly pursuits. When God permits such things, it is a very positive proof that He is thoroughly angry with His people and is visiting His most dreadful wrath upon them."
    -Saint John Eudes
