When you don’t proclaim the Church’s teaching boldly, the government will eventually run over it.
In this case, it’s about the right of association and the right to religious freedom.
When the bishops betrayed us on contraception, they also betrayed us on conscience.
They ignored the first teaching and now the second teaching has been distorted and attacked.
Funny how the two are related, huh?
New evangelization? Pulease. The first group of people that need evangelization are the bishops. And I’m not talking about the paper evangelization; that is, what they tell us in their press releases.
I’m talking on the ground, real life decisions which have real consequences to the Church and society.
