Good for Bishop Hurley! Getting quotes like "This is typical of the Archdiocese which continues to try to silence its members and refuses to engage in any helpful dialog at all" is exactly what all of our American bishops need to be doing.
Decisions like that are what makes the Church look foolish in the eyes of the world.
Yes, Sister, we are not to pant after the admiration of the world. To the contrary.
This "nun" was referred to by the late Fr. Malachi Martin as "Sr. Helen Hammentick" in his writings!
But no wry humour can erase the sheer damage to souls which this woman has wreaked.
What should happen is that a Bishops - or the Bishops of this nation, acting in unity, should formally excommunicate her with bell, book, and candle as a heretic and apostate, and formally expell her from her religious order - and ban her from access to ALL facilities of the Catholic Church in this nation.
But this will not happen - as most of the bishops in the US are in material heresy/schism (since they knowingly tolerate it/allow it to flourish). They will not restrain and discipline their diocesan clergy - ergo it is no surprise that they will not put her out on her behind!
No, the problem is that hte Church has been all too tolerant of dissent against her moral teachings. Those with same sex attraction are called to chastity, and that call is the most compassionate and pastoral thing that can be done -- not affirming sinful activity by the embrace by the Church of the gay activist ideologies of "gay pride".
>>St. Marys Catholic Church in Royal Oak offered its facilities to Call to Action several weeks ago. <<
Why I stay away from Royal Oak.
Perhaps Jeffrey Faggot Montgomery would prefer that we employ the techniques of Tomas de Torquemada? (I'd prefer it, too ...)
Hate the sin; love the sinner.
