Many have already said what needs to be said about this cockamamie event, but it was too important to ignore the deceptive circus at TTC.
This event was where the Holy Father tried to convince us that teaching the Catechism, right and wrong judgments to our children, the fiat of living every day in a state of Sanctifying Grace, not to follow false prophets, worship false Gods, join counterfeit 'churches' was "VENOM".
I commend the Pilot for finding a Catholic writer still willing to put lipstick on the pig under this pontificate. I thought George Weigel was the only dinosaur in the museum of extinct endemic perverted cultish practices.
Still, the lipsticked pig is shrouded in mystery.
At a time when sentimentality sometimes undermines ecumenical thinking, there are those who ask what difference doctrinal differences among Christians make -- isn't God pleased with all of us? The question deserves to be taken seriously, since a certain amount of doctrinal diversity on open questions is not only tolerable but, up to a point, desirable.
We're undermining Russ' 'ecuminical thinking'. Christ actually killed it in one sentence. God doesn't give what is holy to the dogs. And when we're outside of His Mystical Body, we are fulfilling that warning.
My tolerance for deceivers is getting pretty low.
I would love to know who, aside from the Holy Father and Russ Shaw, could ever think theologians teaching heresy to the people we love or leading them to abandon the Sacraments of salvation 'is desirable', wouldn't you?
The source of desiring the catastrophic outcome to all of us is certainly not God.
