"But Because Thou Art Lukewarm, And Neither Cold, Not Hot, I Will Begin To Vomit Thee Out Of My Mouth." -
Apocalypse 3:16. Douay-Rheims Bible

Is it really asking so much to have our shepherds to have a spine? There have been pathetically few... a whopping ONE by my count... that have had the courage to speak plainly, truthfully and in no uncertain terms, in defense of Christ's Church.

Case in point;
Speaker Pelosi is not called by Jesus Christ to lead the Catholic faithful, any more than the religious Sisters in Network are, any more than the leadership of the Catholic Health Association is.Above is a direct quote from Madison (Wisconsin) Bishop Robert C. Morlino. He also is a friend of Tradition, but I digress...

I've already pointed out a couple of times how the ArchPresider Phony-Baloney Roger Mahony of Loose Angles blogs to the world that he is "encouraged by the words and promises of President Obama..." *Grovel, grovel, snort, snort.*

And our own intrepid Cardinal George of Chi-Town (you remember who's from da south-side, dontchya?);
"We are apprehensive as we look to the future, even as we applaud much of the increased care that will be available," Cardinal Francis E. George of Chicago told Catholic News Service March 23, shortly after U.S. President Barack Obama signed into law the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. (Wow. I'm underwhelmed by this Tower of Jello.)

"We are certainly concerned about division in the church, because bishops have to be the people who are concerned about its unity, about keeping people together around Christ," he said. (I guess well deserved excommunications are off the table.)

The cardinal said it remained to be seen whether the executive order promised by Obama would be adequate to keep the status quo on federal funding of abortion.

"The president's executive order puts in some administrative protections that we are very grateful for, but an administrative order doesn't substitute for a statute," he said.
(Michael Voris has already pointed out that Dinglebarry's "executive order" is worthless. The President of the United States DOESN'T make law, nor can he change law. Congress does that.)

For a new moment in stupid politics, pop over to my blog and see what's going on in Oklahoma. I swear that if they were handing out medals for dumb that the Oklahoma Legislative Black Caucus would sweep the gold.

What Cdl George says in the quote appears heretical on two counts: 1. Jesus says flat out that He did not come to bring peace but to divide. So why are the bishops idolizing "unity".

2. The bishops have little to do with creating unity ... It is the Holy Eucharist who unites us with God through Jesus Christ. It is not an act by any or all bishops which do this.

But the bishops continue to exalt their idol over the Church, and over the Word of God.

We Love our Bishop Morlino, and, God willing, we are keeping him. Don't forget to pray for the ones who are keeping the faith, literally.
