Amoris Laetitia: “Withdraw”, Not “Amend”
Over 100 pro-life and pro-family leaders from all over the world leapt to their feet in applause at a meeting in Rome on Saturday after hearing a call for Pope Francis to withdraw his controversial exhortation Amoris Laetitia.
LifeSiteNews reports (please read the rest following the link). Yours truly comments.
It is indicative of our times that not one bishop, not one had the guts to ask for the Apostolic Excrementation to be withdrawn. The strongest words we had from one (1) Bishop asking for it to be rewritten. But this here is the right attitude: Amoris Laetitia is wrong in its deep roots, in the very foundations of its thinking. It must go down the drain.
Once again (as in the case, already reported, of the Veri Catholici conference) the call for orthodoxy comes from the laity whilst the clergy is silent. May the angels look on them, and ask the Lord that they be punished is a fitting way unless they repent.
I receive occasionally links about this or that Cardinal opening his mouth for orthodoxy when it’s comfortable to do so, or when the audience agrees with what he says. Far too easy. Truth cannot be defending only in season. These whitened sepulchres do not impress us. They are silent in the bigger issues, they will not get away with talking in the lesser ones. They are sluts in red or purple, preaching virginity to girls even as they go very publicly publicly fooling around every day. Traitors. Hypocrites. Whitened sepulchres.
The silence of the clergy is deafening. It is up to us, the laity, to defend Truth after the treason of our shepherds.
The laity is acting. Catholics will not be fooled. Those who will be fooled aren’t Catholics, have not deserved to be Catholics, and have no excuses.
I invite all bloggers to publicise all events against Amoris Laetitiae. I also invite them to never mention a supposed “orthodox” interview of some supposed “faithful” Bishop or Cardinal without making clear that this very Bishop or Cardinal has chosen to be silent when he had to speak, and continues to be silent when he has to speak; and that, therefore, no one of them is faithful, not one, but Bishop Schneider.
The clergy has deserted. It is up to us.
