CMTV Responds

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.

Michael Voris is encouraging a cultic like attitude among his supporters, by placing the Pope above criticism. Since I was a member of a cult three decades ago, I know what I'm talking about. He will end up doing grave harm to his subscribers by encouraging spiritual blindness that will cause them to ignore what I've called the rotting head of the fish in a previous post. When many of his supporters get their blinders removed by reality, some of them will probably turn away from the faith in their disillusionment. Hopefully, most of them will realize that Michael Voris was wrong and realize no man, even the Pope, is above criticism.
