There's an awful lot of people trying to get out of Dodge and a few changes are coming to 66 Brooks Drive in the next few months that will be of interest to Boston Catholics. As soon as the ink is dry, Boston Catholic blog readers will be the first to know.
Meanwhile, there's a few fires on the pan.
There are a few upcoming surprises relative to the 'non-discrimination' policy. Be sure to stay tuned to Bryan Hehir Exposed. By the way, a local Catholic who is helping with fact finding has contacted the administration at St. John's Seminary to find out whether the Seminary is admitting applicants with two mommies or daddies.
There is not a single seminarian who has two daddies or two mommies.
How can this be when the Holy Father said that "no child should be denied his or her right to education in faith, which in turn nurtures the soul of the nation"?
Isn't it of prime importance to children and grandchildren of immigrants who earlier came to our shores to produce countless numbers of well-educated moral leaders in our ecclesial communities?
Doesn't St. John's have in a special way the duty and right of educating for its divine mission of helping all to arrive at the fullness of Christian life?
Musn't the young people in the third millennium be a source of energy and leadership in our Church and nation? Therefore, musn't St. John's provide academically rigorous and doctrinally sound programs of education and faith formation?
If so, then don't the wizards need a non-discrimination policy that mandates the enrollment of seminarians with two daddies?
(pssssssst. If anyone knows of a diocescan Catholic school that is doctrinally sound, would you mind spilling the world's best kept secret in the com boxes?)
The fed-up campaign should be ready this week so please keep your digits hovering over the keyboard when the action item goes up.
If you haven't caught up with Boston Catholic Insider's response to the puff piece in the Boston Globe about the Caritas Christi's King of the Cannibals, do read the post HERE and HERE.
I'll keep repeating myself until I'm blue in the face: Either de la Torre did not have the skills to pull the hospitals out of debt by delivering quality health care on the cheap and we had to sell them, or, he's so talented at doing it, he is the model for the nation. Can't have it both ways.
