Legislating from the White House - Catholic Bishops Respond

Barack Hussein's order to the Justice Department to stop defending law is an escalation of structural chaos he was elected to accomplish.

I'm with Patrick's comments HERE.

Can somebody verify if either one of the Oaths Obama took included the language "I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States for only those Laws I like. "??

Separation of powers is not his strong suit.


The Catholic Bishops are stunned.

Stunned I tell you.

They've dressed themselves in sackcloth and they are rolling in the asses, wondering how in the world could this have happened:

The U.S. bishops' Office of General Counsel said the Obama administration's decision to no longer support the Defense of Marriage Act in legal challenges ahead "represents an abdication" of its "constitutional obligation to ensure that laws of the United States are faithfully executed."

"Marriage has been understood for millennia and across cultures as the union of one man and one woman," the office said in a statement issued Feb. 23 after President Barack Obama instructed the Justice Department to stop defending the federal law passed by Congress and signed into law in 1996 by President Bill Clinton.



Then, they all got into their suburus with Obama 08 bumper stickers and went home.


I got an email from a friend of mine who works at the USCCB who told me there was a rumor flying around Bishop Dolan got an emergency call from Ireland. The suggestion was made to have a fooggie washing ceremony.

Any volunteers?

They're looking for the sheet music to the hokie pokie for the DOMA lamentation ceremony if anyone has it hanging around.

You put your left foot in, you put your left foot out, you put your left foot in and you shake it all about. You do the hokie pokie and you turn yourself about. That's what it's all about.


Marriage has been understood for a millennia to be the union of a man and a woman. Across all cultures.

Are they serious?

I have to restrain myself from listing the names of priests and parishes who have been teaching homosexuals to shack up for the last decade with the full support of the Archbishop of Boston. Some of them are shacking up with their lovers themselves.

Really, after the USCCB has been for 40 years working to elect politicians who have taken the morals of this country to the gutter, the last thing I want to see coming out of them is another publicity stunt. It's like reading a press release admonishing hookers and drug dealers from Charlie Sheen.


Remember the hoopla here a few weeks back in Boston about the need to redistrict what constitutes a parish because all the money and people disappeared? The Cardinal pulled together the usual suspects (called it a pastoral planning commission) to figure out the needs of Catholics and map out a 'pastoral plan'? (Info on this team of wizards can be found HERE)


Back at 66 Brooks Drive, the geniuses gathered. Archdiocescan Pastoral Council and the Archbishop think one of the problems is, Catholic teaching is unfriendly to women and gays and something must be done about it.

In the meeting minutes posted HERE, it was pronounced that planning for the Archdiocese needs to be "bold, prophetic, proactive and based upon the person of Jesus Christ".

I never thought of Christ as 'a person' before. They come up with the craziest things up there. One time, a group of diocesan dames decided catechesis was going to be based on 'two men with beards and a bird'.

I know you're thinking 'there she goes again, exaggerating'. But it is the God's honest truth. The catechetical theme one year in this archdiocese was two men with beards and a bird.

You've got to read the minutes in their entirety.

Here's your first clue they won't be finished until well before the archdiocese goes bankrupt:

After a year of intense research and consultation, the current
downward trajectory of our parishes appears unhealthy and unsustainable.


Think about it. That conclusion took a year of intense research and consultation! There won't be any nominations for the sharpest tools in the shed award from this team.

Here's their tack:


Several serious issues need to be addressed to make the Church more welcoming: the roles of women and GLTB persons in the Church, clericalism, the disproportionate wealth of the Vatican, and the antagonism that exists between some pastors and the Archdiocesan administration.


Are seminarians being trained to plan and work collaboratively with laity? Will they be able to work well with women? Fr. David replied that the seminary is implementing coursework in finance, management and human resources administration

Who will make the planning decisions in the parish—the pastor or the parishioners? Fr. David replied that competent administration of a parish requires collaboration of the pastor, the Parish Pastoral Council and the Parish Finance Council.


We're going down babies. Going down.

Got a long way to go before the beast and the false prophet are cast into the lake.

In the meantime, the committees are wracking their brains trying to figure out why there are plenty of seats in kingdom of the zombies.





Here's a laugh though - just when you think the wimps on the Archdiocesan pastoral council couldn't get any more useless, comes this:


Role of the APC: Responding to Email Comments
In October, APC members received email messages from two separate individuals asking the APC to support these individuals’ particular viewpoints by making certain demands of Archdiocesan officials.
After some discussion, a consensus was reached about how to best respond to such messages. Council members should refrain from responding individually to these emails. A designated representative will send an acknowledgement to the person advising him/her that their message will be forwarded to the Cardinal and Fr. Erikson. It is Fr. Erikson’s policy to respond to persons who identify themselves, but not to anonymous writers.


As the Archdiocese finishes the demolition of Catholic identity with their 'consensus', the APC was told they can't respond to the concerns of lay people.

Can anyone say...TYRANNY?

Please help us.

If you're interested in having anything left of the Catholic religion in Boston, stop what you are doing right now, and get over to our latest FED UP campaign and send off your fax to the Holy See asking the Holy Father to intervene in Boston.

CATHOLICS ASK VATICAN FOR INTERVENTION.

It takes less than 30 seconds.


Thanks in advance for your help.

Gutta Love Michael Voris. So sad though..how did we get into such a mess.

the good thing about the zombies, you usually only see them at Christmas and Easter, or confirmation/ communion, then they go away...

Glad my parish isn't like that...

Thanks Jasper - it's very much appreciated.

Michael Voris is spectacular.

Carol, Obama is a busy, busy man. He simply doesn't have time to defend DOMA. He's got more important things on his mind - like running interference for the union thugs and AWOL legislators in Wisconsin and submarining Governor Walker. The man has his priorities, you see? (Hint - check out what I just posted).

I am ignorant.

What is a "suburu"?

What is a "foogie washing ceremony"?

I may have more questions. Let me finish reading the entry...

Pardon, I meant to write "fooggie".

Now I'll be singing the Hokie Pokie to myself all day, Carol. As if my life isn't strange enough..........

Carol McKinley said...

Veronica,

Foogie is slang for feet.

Suburu is the official car of the moonbats.

When you're out driving, take an inventory of stickers on Suburu's.

Lynne said...

Oh Carol, *I* drive a Subaru and trust me, I'm not a moonbat. ;-) I do have a lot of stickers on it though, "Thank you President Bush", the Memorare and a Bless Our Troops magnet.

:-)

Carol McKinley said...

Lynne, How did you slip through? I thought you had to have a letter of permission from Al Gore to purchase a Suburu.

I don't even know what a moonbat is.

Veronica,

My grandmother had a saying that applies - "Leave me in my innocence".

Carol, I couldn't have said it better than your Grannie!

The less I know, the better off I am. There's enough smut to go around for everyone without having to even look for it. In fact, living in this world has begun to resemble wading through a cesspool.
