Skip to comments.Card. Wuerl Silent on Biden Remarks

By now, it's old news that the Vice President of the United States Joseph Robinette "Joe" Biden, a nominal Catholic, not only said he supports homosexual "marriage", but that there's no difference between homosexual "marriage" and heterosexual marriage (also known simply as marriage). His support for this issue was so persuasive that, about an hour ago, the President of the United States announced his support for homosexual "marriage" as well.
What's most troubling is the deafening silence stemming from the Ordinary of the ecclesiastical jurisdiction where the Vice President, his diocesan faithful, works - Cardinal Wuerl. Wuerl, who is accustomed to giving our Lord to pro-abortion politicians and celebrities, such as Nancy Pelosi, Chris Matthews and other nominal Catholics in not-so-good standing, has been silent on Biden's remarks. In fact, when contacted by Rorate Caeli, his communications office refused to comment and said it was "highly unlikely" Wuerl would ever say anything publicly.

Weurl talks a good game but when I see his faith in practice he lacks the boldness required of Christians in Scripture to confront evil. St Paul exhorted all believers to “have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness but rather reprove them.” (Ephes 5:11) He seems to lack a boldness and conviction that is brought forth by the Holy Spirit.

Withe ADR, when does this POS retire? Good spot for Burke.
You don’t climb the Vatican power ladder as high as Mount Washington Donnie without being a consummate politician.
Our primary job is to teach and try to convince people. The tradition in our country has not been in the direction of refusing communion, and I think its served us well.

You cant blame him for praising such a brilliant strategy, I mean there are hardly any pro-gay marriage Catholic public figures around anymore due to this whiz-bang strategy. It really sends a good message to all the regular Catholics watching that gay marriage is a really big deal to the bishops, too. I mean he cares enough to not do anything about it besides saying it is bad, and everyone knows the less you actually do about something the more important it must be to you.
