A Vortex Blooper??

I find myself in agreement with the Vortex 99.9% of the time.  However, it's that 0.1% of the time where I must wonder what got into their drinking water.  This appears to be one of those rare moments.  Why on earth would Voris even suggest (even in jest) that faithful Catholics take erring bishops, etc to secular civil court for violations of the faith?  Yes, he said "secular", not "canonical".

He mentions the conservative Anglicans doing that in relation to keeping their church real estate, but that seems to be more of a matter as to which legal entity holds title to which properties.  Even then, they appear to be ascribing to courts the authority to determine what constitutes true Anglicanism.  Why, oh why, would any Catholic, with two working brain cells, even dream of throwing away their First Amendment rights in such a foolhardy venture?

  1. I've been waiting for the class action suit. I believed the bishops that it was only a small percentage of priests abusing minors, but then I read about Cardinal McCarrick and Weakland and see them still saying mass. The entire clergy is either homosexual or tolerant of homosexuals (or they didn't get ordained). Once sin is in the camp it wrecks the whole dough. Whose agenda is being advanced in the United States and world--Cardinal McCarrick's civil union 2006 "mis-speak" or the Magisterium's? Last year, DC voted to approve gay marriage and today it is expected that Maryland (state named after blessed virgin w/a Catholic governor educated at Gonzaga, CUA & member of St Francis of Assisi parish) will pass homosexual marriage as a Valentine's present to homosexuals--an agenda that wasn't mentioned in the 2010 election.

    How many of our children are pagans? How many of our parents have been killed in Catholic nursing homes or persuaded to kill themselves with priest & sister's approval? Why was abortion health care passed last year with the help of a $1 million salaried nun who the head of the USCCB is on "the same page" with and who prays to "whatever"? How many vocations are being purposely lost because when men go to a Franciscan monastery for a retreat they are solicited for sex?

    The first psalm says:

    Blessed is the one
    who does not walk in step with the wicked
    or stand in the way that sinners take
    or sit in the company of mockers,
    2 but whose delight is in the law of the LORD,

    My parish is a hotbed of standing in sin and rebellion. How can I continue to worship there? This is the extent of what my pastor said on gay marriage: the church is concerned because the legislature is "redefining" a word. If the legislature can redefine "marriage", they can redefine any word. Is that why we are opposed to gay marriage - because a word is being re-defined?

    If the class action suit comes, I'm signing on and giving any resulting money to the poor.

  2. I totally agree. That's completely stupid. Prayer, obedient action, and fidelity is the answer.

    God Bless,

  3. Hi! There is a flyer going around for a day of prayer with the Sisters of Mercy in Clinton, MD. Do you know anything about their orthodoxy? I thought I had read recently that their "orthodoxy" leaves a lot to be desired, but I could be wrong. Do you have any info? Thanks!

  4. No, it was actually the Religious Sisters of Mercy. Know anything about them?
