If this is not the great age of Apostasy, I don’t know what is. Ask yourself why this civil union fraud is popular among the bishops and cardinals (even though many of them won’t say it).
There are two principal reasons:
1) They are homosexual.
2) They prefer not to offend over accepting the persecution that will come if they defend the Gospel.
That basically sums it up. Any bishop or cardinal advancing civil unions is, in my books, ripe for consideration for option number 1. In fact, they should be confronted and asked the question to their faces.
