This is hard to believe, but German Cardinal Karl Lehmann claims there's a boogeyman in Rome obstructing heretics and apostates from becoming bishops.
I guess not enough of them are getting through and he's upset about it.
"In the name of the law, these unlawful outside influences must be set aside and a proper voice given to those who'll be living with the chosen candidate," said Cardinal Karl Lehmann of Mainz, who was president of the German bishops' conference from 1987 to 2008....
However, Lehmann said he believed the nomination process was being disrupted by people "focused on a strict church policy allowing no deviation" and who had "knowledge of how things work in Rome."
"Much greater attention should be given to an episcopal candidate's theological competence than his formal orthodoxy," said Lehmann."
Good! It's working!
We've got plenty of tar and feathers where those came from!
I wondered...Could he possibly mean the testosterone sniff test?
Out of curiosity, I googled the Cardinal's name with a hot-button keyword, which I shall leave to your imagination, and found this group of posts revealing a peculiar obsession shilling homoerotica.
This phrase was found in the top six or seven returns on my query: Cardinal Lehmann, the Guadian Angel of the homosexuals?
This episcopal pig's legacy is summarized in HERE.
Under Lehmann’s leadership, the German bishops conference became known as one of the most “liberal” in the Catholic world. They have come under heavy criticism for their ownership of a publishing company that sells pornography, which they have defended, claiming it was not porn but only “erotica”. Also on Lehmann’s watch, the conference was engaged in a decades-long fight with the Vatican over its involvement in a government programme that helped women obtain abortions.
It's amazing, isn't it, that a bishop could publish homosexual erotica and kill people and still retain his position.
The only safe place from this guy for Catholic women and children are the ladies rest rooms and dressing rooms at Target.
