The liberal hierarchy of the Church establishment continues to spew forth accolades to the late Nelson Mandela. Predictably, the president of the USCCB has joined in the cheerleading. The USCCB webpage has the statement from Archbishop Kurtz. Among other things he said, "Nelson Mandela was a light for peace and equality in his country and for the whole world."
Pardon my french, but how could he utter that crap with a straight face? Does a "light for peace" open the floodgates for abortion and sodomy in his own country? Perhaps by "light" he meant that coming from gasoline-filled tires around the necks of executed South African citizens.
Meanwhile, Adam Smith, Fox News Commentator, was dismissed from his other position as movie reviewer at the Catholic News Service - which is, of course, controlled by the USCCB. And what was his "high crime and misdemeanor"? He takes umbrage with some of Pope Francis' "off-the-cuff" remarks and likens him to Obama. Well, the USCCB took umbrage at Smith. One must wonder if the USCCB took similar swift actions against previous movie reviews (e.g. Harry Forbes) for their overly-lenient reviews of "Brokeback Mountain", "The Golden Compass" and rather derogatory review of the "Passion of the Christ"? Harry Forbes stayed on for several years after his Brokeback slopjob. Let's hope the USCCB doesn't bring him back to fill Smith's slot (I wouldn't put it past them).
