When is this circus of a synod anyhow?
Remember the fifty years of urban legends and kooky theology that delusional people swore were approved at Vatican II that wound up in Catholic educational resources?
Yeah. I think the Pope Francis synod will make that look like content from the Remnant.
Cardinal Kasper recently spoke about the Pope's agenda on contraception.
Parents need to make decisions on how many children they should have, not the Church.
Here is something we can believe: He doesn't know what the solution is to close the "gulf" between Church teaching and disobedience to it.
I am sure he is clueless about the remedy of teaching substance that awakens the conscience and drives people to the Sacrament of Confession and Sacramental Grace in the Eucharist. He hasn't used that gulf closer since the nuns threw on their first pair of polyester pants.
He also articulated mutual decisions to refrain from relations when a woman is ovulating is "artificial", implying its the same thing as using abortifacient of birth control pills.
A madman has been put in charge of the synod.
Maybe we should hire Frs Paul Nicholson and George Rutler and hole up with them for a ten day retreat until its over?!
