Our friends from CMTV have clarified what they intended to convey.
Excellent post by Mundabor.
Reasonable and faithful Catholics who are pointing out the consequences of the Pope's statements in their families, homes, people they love and care about, their parishes and in the culture - they are not the problem.
It assigns blame to the wrong party.
If the Pope taps an apostate bishops to guide his see and after the kooky lecture, caricatures it as great theology - the onus for that scandal is on the Pope.
If the Pope says he's open to civil unions for insurance reasons, the fix isn't silencing the expression of how what the Pope is doing, saying and isn't doing and saying is affecting catechesis, evangelization and salvation.
I could go on and on with the long and painful year's worth of nonsense that has caused people I love and care about to see moral theology and sanctifying grace as irrelevant to their salvation.
Blaming parents and people who are correcting the errors and setting the crooked lines straight - is a cop out.
It allows the party doing damage to continue to do harm.
