Roman Catholic Hate Machine, even on Easter

Posted: Sunday, March 31st, 2013

RCC Timothy Dolan went on the ABC Sunday talk show. Instead of all the positive things he could have done on Easter, the cardinal spewed idiotic crap. He said all my gay brothers and sisters are entitled to “friendship” but not love.

I am an Old Catholic archbishop, and I so wish my voice was loud enough to drown out this Roman Catholic cardinal’s hate. Friendship, not love. The gay kids in Dolan’s area (NYC) need warm hugs. Card. Dolan needs to be transferred to Nome.

Friendship, not love. This is the Roman blessing for Easter.

Once upon a time, Roman Catholics were polite

Cardinal Richard Cushing (1895-1970)Back in the ancient past (the 1950s), Roman Catholics in the USA had manners and common decency.

It was that idyllic period between the Spanish Inquisition and Pope Benedict.

I as a Catholic have absolutely no right in my thinking to foist through legislation or through other means, my doctrine of my church upon others. It is important to note that Catholics do not need the support of the civil law to be faithful to their religious convictions.

That quote comes from Richard Cushing (1895-1970), the Roman Catholic Cardinal of Boston, Massachusetts. He is the cleric who officiated at the marriage of John F Kennedy and Jacqueline Bouvier (1953).

Compare that to the vitriol we’re getting from the current leaders of the pope’s flock in New York City and Baltimore. They’re so filled with hatred and judgements that there’s little wonder the pews are more and more empty. It’s a situation that is shameful and unnecessary.

Oh for the good old days.

 

Roman Catholic wants state to enforce canons

Posted: Friday, February 24th, 2012

Cardinal Edwin O'Brien of Maryland (USA)The pope’s head guy in the US state of Maryland has trouble enforcing the big guy’s rules. Cardinal Edwin O’Brien knows that Rome frowns on dudes marrying dudes. When two guys are in love, the cardinal wants them to live in sin. No marriage.

The trouble is that there are more people than Romists in Maryland. Worse for Rome is that some of these citizens are members of churches that teach love. The Roman Catholics will have none of it. Instead of throwing rice, they are trying to throw barricades and roadblocks.

It’s one thing for the Roman Catholics to refuse to welcome all their adherents to the sacraments. It’s quite another when they demand that the state government enforce Roman Catholic laws in other churches.

If the Romans want to be hatful and exclusionary and bigoted, that’s great. They can teach all their people with sternly puckered white lips until the cows come home.

This cardinal — the head guy for the Vatican in Maryland — wants “marry land” open only to Roman-approved couples.

Great legacy you’ve got working there, Edwin.

Now run along, and deal with your own flock. Because if you insist on getting into my church’s rules, it’s time to recognize your stance as that of a bully. And, sir… in the USA, bullies are taxed at a higher rate than actual church leaders.
