coincidentally

By Diogenes (articles ) | Mar 27, 2006

Just keep repeating to yourself:

"There is no connection ..."
"There is no connection ..."
"There is no connection ..."

"There is no connection between a gay lifestyle and sexual abuse." If you say it often enough you might come to believe it.

Well, it worked for Wilton Gregory.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    At the same time that Bishop McManus of the Worcester Diocese in Massachusetts was driving off to give the correct teaching about "gay marriage" when recalcitrant priests wouldn't, this same bishop was trying to downplay the fact that he knew a priest had been arrested for lewd conduct (with a man) in Las Vegas. It came out only when the media got hold of it.

    Aquinas and the CCC teach us, rightly so, that we can know truths through revelation and the use of reason. I wonder how our bishops are calibrating their faculties of reason?

    His Excellency, Wilton Gregory, and General George Armstrong Custer have an awful lot in common.

    Why just pick out Wilton Gregory? Didn't you tell us recently that the Cardinals, including George, urged the Pope to delay the directive re homosexual priests and seminarians because it would further the connection between the abuse scandal and homosexuality, (CWR 3./06) rather than pedophiles? Aren't these the fellows the Pope is counting on, as noted in the news and your commentary?Alll of this is just a game - There is no orthodoxy in America, and little in the world. Come Holy Spirit!

    "Throughout the sex abuse crisis, he has been adamant about one thing: not maintaining tradition, not protecting reputations, but safeguarding the children. Gregory was among the first to call abuse a crime — breaking from earlier Church teachings that insisted it was moral weakness that could be curbed, even stopped, through vigorous prayer and religious counseling." http://www.time.com/time/pow/article/0,8599,233622,00.html Time Magazine said it, so it must be true.
