I read a few things in Christendom about the Voris story (including a comment that I did not publish) I thought worthy of mention. Namely, that the retaliatory act of the Archdiocese of scrounging up people whistlblower's slept with is justified, because after all, if you report corruption, spiritual abuse or rape, you deserve it.
In a perverted display of 'mercy', one individual went so far as to smear whistleblowers by claiming the reporting of abuse is a smear worthy of comeuppance. I bet that BroomHilda chants the Divine Mercy Chaplet every day while riding the stick up her butt. A regular St. Faustina, that one. Very inspiring.
A formally-affiliated priest is now calling a cease and desist on whistleblowing holy corruption. More astounding, he has alleged Sanctifying Grace is insufficient healing for homosexual sex.
In his disclosure, Michael himself implied that evangelists and whistleblowers should stand in the public square and announce details of our sins before teaching Catholicism or reporting abuse.
Folks, I think we are getting a little daft here.
Look, is there conduct that would make a post-conversion career in evangelism and whistleblowing ill-advised?
But do you remember when Christ chose sinless people to 'smear' Herod and Herodias?
I don't either. The Bible I have has Christ calling John the Baptist the greatest man who will ever live.
Spiritual abuse of children is much worse than raping them. So said Christ.
We have spent 60 years trying to get the corruption, spiritual and physical abuse stopped through the ranks of the hierarchy. It was a bust. We were threatened and bullied. The only thing that works is public disclosure and lawsuits. Egg on the face and emptying wallets are the only proven methods of stopping the abuse and corruption.
Exhausting internal methods and after failing to remedy abuse, publicly warning the people, these are the instructions given to us in Scripture. This is not the same thing as having perps hunt down the sexual lovers of a whistleblower to shut them up.
During my days of defying the Church on contraception, I led people astray. I am trying to make up for it and prevent other women from being misled by wayward priests and bishops. The zeal and fire is probably overdone but I offer it as reparation. The same motive holds true for nearly every evangelist. God makes all things new again. Completely.
Keep your powder dry and your intellect clear with Sanctifying Grace.
