Bishop Dolan and the homo church or: when pious hopes are not enough.
If you wonder why this blog has so many Michael Voris videos, the answer is: because they are so good!
This one is rather shocking because it catches even Bishop Dolan (generally considered one of the good, if not of the very good) in a dangerous slip of – probably ill-advised – “diplomacy”.
As I have explained in the last entry about Michael Voris, the times when a Bishop could make such mistakes and get away with it are gone.
Bishop Dolan’s (referred) answer remains highly unsatisfactory not in its doctrinal basis (which is very sound) but in the implications about how able he is of sound judgment and, when necessary, tough love.
The truth is that the only thing coming out from St. Francis Xavier seems to be serial ambiguities (well they are Jesuites, aren’t they….) meant not to go in open conflict with the Bishop whilst at the same time giving an implied but still very clear support to the homosexual agenda. Just look at what they put in their internet site. The thin veil of not-openly-denied orthodoxy cannot conceal the scandal. This must be stopped.
The contrast with Courage (a thoroughly orthodox, highly commendable organisation) is rather impressive.
I do hope that Bishop Dolan will understand that a harder line needs to be taken here. There comes a point where the lie is so big that naivete in believing it is no less culpable than weakness in dealing with it.
