I concluded my previous post about the USCCB gab-fest with a question for which I believe we now have an answer, and a rather unsurprising one at that. With a handful of exceptions, they are about the deconstruction of the Faith, the transformation of the Church into a shill for "social justice", i.e. anti-God socialism. I won't analyze all the insults to the Faith that have just happened, lest I be here till doomsday doing all that. I will summarize.
Cardinal Cupich flat out tried to defend his utter disregard for Canon 915. His lame excuse? "Sanctions..don't change anybody's minds". Do you see what is completely omitted from his thinking? He disregards his responsibility to protect the Blessed Sacrament from sacrilege and to keep these unrepentant pro-aborts from burdening their souls with yet another mortal sin, that of sacrilege against the Blessed Sacrament.
The bishops ostensibly had as a major point of their agenda (the one that didn't even mention Jesus Christ) the mechanisms by which they purport to address the sex abuse crisis. If you're looking for a list of new and innovative actions that they'll be taking, there isn't any list for there are no real changes. The bishops will continue to police themselves. It's the same-old-same-old. Surprise!
Ah, but there is one change, one that will ensconce heresy into the American catechism. They are going to tweek it to refer to the pope's erroneous statement that the death penalty is "inadmissible". Nope! The Church, in her entire history, has always acknowledged that the death penalty is a legitimate means by which the state can protect its citizens. No pope can say what Tradition deemed right centuries ago is now a moral wrong. Make no mistake. This death penalty stunt is their chosen trial balloon. Since many good Catholics are adverse to it, the Vatican believes they will put up little resistance to this one little tinkering with Church teaching. They reason that if they can get away with this heresy, that the acceptance of other heresies will be easier to get faithful Catholics to swallow.
I guess they are implementing Hitler's addage: "If you repeat a lie often enough, they will believe it." Our job is to make sure that doesn't happen. I'm posting below a Vortex regarding the Church hierarchy and their attempt to continue the lies. Of course Church Militant isn't the lone organization pursuing truth. There are others, such as Lepanto Institute, Remnant TV, LifeSiteNews and quite a few others.
