The Bishops are being played like cheap fiddles

She’s right:

…particularly this point:

So, in a few months, after you all have played right into their hands and shut down your facilities, hospitals, schools and services, congratulating yourselves on your “brave protest”, the Obama regime is going to make a ginormous propaganda offensive telling all of the stupid TV-addled idiots that the Catholic Church doesn’t give a crap about “the people” because they have shut down their hospitals, schools, their soup kitchens, their adoption agencies and won’t even provide health insurance plans to the poor, poor youths attending their universities. The Catholic Church hates “the people”, hates charity, hates sick people, hates women, hates children, hates poor people and is hoarding all of its money.

We’re so screwed; it’s not funny.  Failing to preach the Gospel really does have ominous consequences and we’re all going to feel it.

The really good news is that the bishops of tomorrow will look NOTHING like the ones today.  The ones who are retiring today and of the past 40 years are going to fall under severe judgement of history.

  1. Whoever wrote this sounds like an athiest! He would love to see the church violate conscience and go along with Obama the anti-Christ! I for one would support our Bishops with my life! You are making excuses to abandon our faith and probably don’t have a backbone!

  2. Uh…I would read the entire article. She is saying that indeed we SHOULD STAND UP, but not in the way the Left wants this game played.

    We need to disturb the narrative.

  3. Stephen why the insult? What if Obama is planning to vilify “the Catholic Church” with an enormous Hollywood funded TV campaign citing how “the Catholic Church” has abandoned America just to be mean? Will that story be the truth? Do you count on the lapdog concensus media to report fairly and completely? Do you count on the viewing public to do something other than erupt with their consensus venom at you and me for our “support” of such an anti-American institution as the evil “Catholic Church” whatever the most convenient meaning is for that intentionally reductionist moniker at that moment ?

    We need to disrupt that narrative.

  4. Well,
    Is closing shop the only option? Why not keep the doors of all these institutions open and let the government close them down if they have to. Then people will see who is really the villain. I think Catholics and their shepherds have to take a firm stand, and if we’re martyred in the square of public opinion, it’ll count toward the greater glory of God, the salvation of our souls, and the strengthening of the body of Christ. We cannot abandon the poor and sick – the Gospel and our Baptism behoove us to stand with them; this is clear in Jesus’ description of the last judgement: whatsoever you did for them, you did for me.

    • Yes, civil disobedience is in order.

      An unjust law is no law at all, and hence has no binding power. Keep doing the business that we are supposed to, while omitting that part which is unjust.

      Let the government do what they will in response – martyrdom is to the greater glory of God.

  5. Hi Jim,
    Yes, though I’d prefer to frame it as obedience to Christ (I’m sure that we’re saying the same thing).

  6. First, she isn’t right; the decisions to cease health care coverage were made by college administrators, for example. She is dismissing the actual actions of the Bishops (issuing a letter declaring they will not comply; speaking out on the issue in many venues; taking legal action) by implying or stating they are doing nothing but giving in. Second, she is speaking about the leaders of the Church in a manner I wouldn’t allow my children to use for *anyone* with a complete lack of charity.
