Our discussions about homosexuality have camouflaged the truth

September 14 2018 By dvirtue LONG ISLAND, NY: Catholic Priest Reflects on his Church's Betrayal of the Faith

You see, I made my First Holy Communion at the age of seven, in May, 1967. It was the great Springtime of Renewal in the wake of Vatican II. I then proceeded to watch the dissolution of the Church, a spectacle which is still going on.

The vastly improved vision of the de-convert is not a description of spiritual growth or theological depth. Rather, the person who now sees "even clearer" complains of a spiritual cataract that distorted their vision when they first claimed to be able to see.

Sadly, his etymological Greek was not good, so when he looked up Paediatricians in the Yellow Pages, he reckoned he had rooted out a member of a child-abusing sex gang and acted accordingly. He vandalised her house. He spray painted "PEDO" across her front walls.

Pope Francis' visit to Ireland last weekend was also overshadowed by a sex scandal. But rather like the vigilante in Wales, not everyone in the media grasped what had actually been alleged.

More significantly, he signed on to the school's honor code (I will not lie, cheat or steal), and to the daily chapel required of all students. Years later, while at the Hanoi Hilton, he was able to recite from memory the Episcopal liturgy, which gave his fellow POWs perhaps as much encouragement during their years of captivity as his refusal to jump the line of POWs released, offered to him alone because his father was CINCPAC commander.

August 27 2018 By dvirtue Church Militant Statement on the Pope - It needs to end

Out of respect for the office of Pope, and so as not to induce scandal, we have dutifully left the work of publicly analyzing his theological content to those above us, more qualified to address those things specifically and those responses we have covered in great detail.
