ABOUT THE CATHOLIC CHURCH AND THE 50 MILLION CATHOLICS IN THIS
A good question; for there is no such thing as a "Catholic Vote" in
this country, and there hasn't been one for many years.
Why? Because the hierarchical Church, trying very slowly to get
the Middle Ages, has rendered itself irrelevant to the lives of many
- especially to those of young and / or child-bearing ages, the
"seed-corn" of the future Church. Indeed, it was only in the
early 1990's that the Pope saw fit to forgive Galileo his "sin"
regarding the heavenly bodies.
And this is not new. I grew up as - and still am - a good
In the early years, my parents and I knew many married couples who had
going to Church when they married...because they "didn't want to be
hypocrites". They returned - after their child-bearing
years. Why? You guessed it. The Church's stance on
contraception...then and now. Except for the evil Popes of
centuries, and trying to get Fr. Martin Luther to sell indulgences, and
excesses of the Inquisition, this is the Church's deepest
wound. And it has produced indirectly the epidemic of abortions
the last many decades. Totally unnecessary and not divined by
or by the Scriptures, in my opinion. Indeed, Pope Paul VI in 1968
vote down the strong majority contrary vote of his clerical Commission
by him with addressing this issue, in order to perpetuate this
folly. Here we speak, of course, only of contraceptives that
union of ovum and egg - and NOT of those abortifacients that function
new human being has been created by that union.
Want more? The Church refuses to deal with the substantial body
scientific evidence indicating that Homosexuality is not a choice, but
biologic fact, determined by genetics and by the in utero
those individuals. Here we speak of moral and committed
individuals - and
not of the flaming and depraved libertines who gave us the spread of
who have contributed to our empty secular society.
And what is the Church's antidote for all this? Continuing to
the spirit and intent of Vatican ll. Emphasizing the Magisterium
than supporting and encouraging the Laity, the "Body of the
Church". Producing a profusion of new Saints...with
apparent conception of the meaning of "inflation" and its
effect on both faith in and the value of the currency. Even the
initiatives of the Catholic Bishops against aspects of ObamaCare are
by the Bishops' ineffectiveness in distinguishing contraceptives from
abortifacients...a uniform ploy used by the other side.
Thus, the Catholic Church is becoming irrelevant to both Catholics and
adversaries and enemies. And a "Catholic Vote" is
It pains me to say all of this. But it must be said and heard.
would begin by requiring periodic neuro-psychologic testing for all
certainly for the members of the Roman Curia.
