For me, I’m just going over a pertinent question in my head.
Just how are we supposed to fight when we have cowards as bishops?
There’s no real leadership. Just talk, talk, talk, talk, talk.
But there’s plenty of “velvet glove” being applied when pastoral approaches are invoked to pull priests who criticize homosexuality or restrict priests who actually try and move the culture to being pro-life.
FOR THAT, they suddenly grow a pair, but rarely for anything else. They are a stumbling block to the Gospel and the greatest impediment to the new evangelization .
