Rosicagate: Comedy Gold, And Even More Nonsense, From The Mouth Of The Man Himself!
I have become aware of a pearl from a blog post about Father Rosica written by the Lepanto Institute
Father Rosica is on record with the following words:
“We need the Francis revolution of tenderness and mercy now more than ever before.”
I thought Francis was a world-class hypocrite, but this one is every bit his equal!
This, I must say, made my day. I had not laughed with such gusto for a while.
But there is more.
The Lepanto Institute has the link to a speech held by the man and published by the Archdiocese of Baltimore. Father Rosica’s tongue appears not only inordinately long*, but uncommonly twisted*.
In it, you can find pearls of evil* like the following one. The red emphases are mine. The “rebranded” one, a concept as stupid as Modernism is stupid, is in the original page.
What is the most important achievement of Pope Francis? He has rebranded Catholicism and the papacy.
Prior to Francis, if you asked people on the street, “What is the Catholic church all about? What does the pope stand for?”, the response would often be, “Catholics, well they are against abortion, gay marriage and birth control.” “They are known for the sex abuse crisis that has terribly marred and weakened their moral authority and credibility. Though the media rightly exposed our sins for the abuse crisis, at the same it often falsely portrays us for our teaching and values at the core of our Catholic beliefs.
Today, the response would be different. What do they say about us now? What do they say about the Pope? People are speaking about our leader who is unafraid to confront the sins and evils that have marred us. We have a pope who is concerned about compassion, love, especially for the poor. He has even won over the media.
Many of my colleagues in the media industry have said that Francis has made it fun to be a religion reporter and journalist again. He has done such a magnificent job in changing the image of the church that our prestigious graduate schools of business and management could use him as a case study in rebranding.
This is stupid beyond words*, and one who talks in this way has forgotten what it is to be a priest a long time ago*.
The man seriously has a problem with, and considers bad that, people on the street would, if asked, immediately identify the Church with Her oppositon to abortion, so-called “gay marriage” (why these people never say “so-called”? Do they consider such an abomination “marriage”?) and birth-control (notice here: he avoids the use of the word “contraception”. Birth-control is so much more neutral, clinical; it evokes the idea of dealing with a problem…).
The Church opposes these things. So much so, that Her opposition is the first thing that comes to mind when people on the street think about the Church. This is bad, thinks Father Rosica! We need a rebranding! Mind, the same enemies of the Church also complain endlessly about the Homosexual Pedophile Priest Scandal; but Rosica does not have the gut to say this does not happen anymore so it does not count and we can discard it as a smoke curtain, or a snide* remark at Benedict.
What is then happening now, with Francis so happily reigning? Are we still plagued by this horrible brand, “those who are in favour of unpopular Truths”?
No! Today, the response would be different! Rejoice, oh ye contracepting, sodomising, and aborting masses! The newly rebranded Church of Francis wants you to buy the product, and has decided to get rid of the bad parts of the brand! From now on, sin will not be condemned, merely “confronted”! What a beautiful word! Confronted… how? But with “mercy”, of course! Forget condemnation, sin, hell, the entire old thing! We need to re-brand, remember?
Lord, give me strenght…
Well, that’s enough exclamation and interrogation points for now. I leave it to you to pick other interesting parts, because life’s too short for the rubbish of such a man.
We must all be grateful to Mr Domet. In a twisted way, we should also be grateful to Father Rosica. Without both of them I, for one, would be blessedly unaware of what a tool we have to deal with here.
