A lot of talk saying that Catholic heirarchy will do nothing.
A waste of time reading it.
We already know they will do nothing, for they HAVE done nothing.
Losing catholics every day because there is no longer a threat of having a punishment meted out if you are a powerful enough politician.
GOD DENIERS AND CONGENITAL LIARS
What does Mr. Cuomo gain from pushing the limits on abortion promotion? Surely the Democrat voters are his. Is it just death for death’s sake, the Death Eaters who desire nothing else?
WHY aren’t the Bishops standing up and condemning, not him as a soul, but his actions, categorically? Do they think God isn’t paying attention?
Mr. Cuomo’s sidestepping his catholic religion is of no importance compared to his ignoring Jesus Christ!
“...New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, a Catholic...”
Sheesh, don’t make it sound like he is a rarity. Castro, Chavez and Hitler were all Catholics. And let’s not overlook the Kennedys.
If it weren’t for the Catholics Obama would have never gotten to first base.
‘Public agitation for a canonical rebuke is likely to be counter-productive; unless accompanied by serious prayers and penances for its object, I would even call it hypocritical. Canonical rebukes are not to be exercises in triumphalism.’
Any sane first grade teacher knows that you can’t teach without public discipline. It’s so all the other kids watching realize that the issue at hand is a big deal, just like the teacher says. If all the teacher ever does is yell and scold, the student’s will come to realize that being bad isn’t really a big deal, what’s a little scolding?
Seems to me public discipline hasn’t been tried yet in the case of abortion, so many have been conditioned to think that despite the bishops scolding it must really not be too big a deal when you get right down to it.
Freegards, thanks for all the pings on FR
