A synod is supposed to be a discussion about how faithful priests and bishops have been teaching and sanctifying, the effects of lousy catechesis, how to stop priests and bishops from doing a stinky job.
Some of the reports I've read reveal bishops who think the discuss is a democratic process that changes Church teaching.
Church Militant reported one bishop suggested the remedy to get people back to Church was forgetting the Sacrament of Confession and coming up with a general absolution.
Why not just give out Reese's Peanut Butter Cups to 'absolve sins'?
Archbishop Paul-Andre Durocher of Gatineau, Quebec is a genuine imbecele. One of his suggestions was 'female deacons'.
Some invalid matter ought to liven things up.
His three-minute screed was dedicated to letting women take over all the roles in the Church. Everything but the golf tournaments, LOL.
And this guy was evidently head of the Canadian Conference of Bishops. God help the Canadians.
When things got too crazy, Pope Francis had to intervene on the interventions:
Pope Francis has told bishops taking part in a Church review of family teachings that its stance on the indissolubility of marriage was not up for discussion, despite hopes of an opening towards remarried divorced people
The pontiff, who was not expected to address the global synod on the family on Tuesday, spoke out after concerns among conservatives over a bid by liberals to allow remarried divorced people to take communion.
He's getting a real education on breathtaking stupidity of bishops.
Maybe now he finally understands what we're talking about.
So far, so good!
