Flynn in a nutshell

By Diogenes (articles ) | Jan 28, 2005

My comment below is a bit lengthy. So for the benefit of readers in a hurry, let me offer a very quick summary observation:

Catholic News Service reports that Archbishop Flynn "got no sense."

And Cardinal Arinze seems to agree. The boy got no sense.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Diogenes, I agree with you & his Eminence, Cardinal Arinze: Archbishop Flynn got no sense. Thus, Flynn should have no diocese to de-sense by his non-sense. He should be removed from his diocese. He has given public scandal: by allowing sodomites to parade at Mass; & by his personally encouraging Rainbow Sashers to promote sodomy. Cardinal Arinze (& thereby Peter) has spoken: Rainbow sashers should be denied Communion. Flynn has disobeyed the Holy Father, who we hope will end the Flynn-Flam.

    In that same report the Bishops also said that, "On liturgical matters,..., the bishops were able to report on 'the faithfulness of God's people in the United States and the great love they have for the liturgy.' [and that], the bishops told the Vatican they have not experienced anything in their dioceses that would indicate a lack of faith on the part of the church community regarding the liturgy." Either the Vatican or the "Bishops" have to be blind and deaf, but apparently not dumb.
