The Statement from Hell

Great interview. Go over to LSN and read it.  Don’t forget to donate to them too.

This part caught my attention….

Q. When most Catholics come to the stumbling block of Humanae Vitae, for you it was the cornerstone which led you to fullness of truth.  Why?

A: This is hard to answer succinctly because my “cradle reversion” did not happen in an instant or even a series of instants.  Owing to the fact that I am clever but not wise, I took an abnormally long bit of time to understand the message of Humanae Vitae. 

Growing up under the long shadow of the Winnipeg Statement, which for all intents and purposes made the encyclical into a toothless lion, it was never explained to me how the norms Paul VI was spelling out were actually binding on everyone, not just conservative Catholics.

And there you have it, folks.

How many bishops are in hell right now because of that Statement?  And how many more will be there because they refused to repent and revoke it?

Sadly, one day we will all find out.
