James Carroll's whiplash

What is the obsession, he wonders, with the religious right's insistence on being part of the democracy and pursuit of our apostolic promises to speak to truth, whether convenient or inconvenient.

He and Elton John feel that the Catholic religion should be banned

Lots of luck fellas!

I mean, let's face it - when it gets to the point where even the USCCB vomits their half-assed drivel on the subject matter in the public square, we've just got to be close to Armeggedon!

Poor Bishop Burke led a crusade against the Brokeback Bishops and at the end of the day - we had a head count....We have 24 authentic Bishops left in the United States.

Burke said there was "a clear presence of scandal" in situations involving Catholic politicians who repeatedly legislate contrary to church teaching and yet receive Holy Communion. Many bishops spoke in support of Burke's words. The document was approved overwhelmingly, 201-24 with two abstentions.

Twenty four is double what we started the religion with so I certainly have no complaints. Praise be to Jesus Christ, now and forever.

Knowing the confusion that Jesuits have spread across the planet, AB Burke made a valiant attempt to get more specific on how to minister to homosexual and lesbian Catholics:

During debate before the vote, Burke asked that a national, Vatican-approved group called Courage, which counsels gay Catholics to lead chaste lives, be added to the text as an example of an organization doing the kind of work spoken of in the guidelines.

Paulson, ever exploiting the Catholic religion, gives a perfect example of how the ambiguity manifests itself and ends in alienation:

Those outreach programs, which exist in multiple parishes and dioceses including Boston, are often the target of criticism by conservatives. In 1999, Pope John Paul II barred a US priest, the Rev. Robert Nugent, and nun, Sister Jeannine Gramick, from "any pastoral work involving homosexual persons," declaring that the two had refused to communicate the church's teaching about "the intrinsic evil of homosexual acts and the objective disorder of the homosexual inclination."

But, alas, the largely homosexual episcopal body rejected clarifying the differences between legitimate communion with the Body of Christ and the confusion and rage of letting Gramick, Cuenin, the Boston presbyterate and Sisters of St. Joseph presenting our teachings as hateful.

Time for Fr. Wilson's immortal wisdom:

Watching the bishops’ conference in action is like viewing the film of a train wreck over and over again. With bright-colored clowns hanging out the train windows, waving and blowing kisses. One only wishes one had a tomato.
