This article on First Things starts pretty well, but then degenerates into an almost endless bloviation about the weakness and dirt of the Church. The author, obviously a case of bad conversion, needs to reflect on a couple of things, and I would like to help him in that.
Firstly, the Church is not the “soaring baldacchini of Bernini”, and J.S. Bach was actually a Protestant. Whilst the Church is aesthetically wonderful, she is not and cannot be reduced to that.
She is the Bride of Christ.
When the principles are properly understood, the rest follows. The Church is beautiful in Her Indefectibility and in Her being the absolute Embodiment of Truth. She is also a bearer and creator of beauty, harmony and wonder throughout history, but this is not the substance of what She is.
The Church is, also, run by humans, and she says nowhere (nor has any Bernini’s baldacchino ever denied) that her leaders will not be bad, or very bad, or outright evil, in whatever measure God’s Providence may allow.
God allows bastards to run the Church, as He did several times in the past. The Church still survives (as she always did in the past) and will, one day, shine again in Her Majesty, revealing all Her beauty and shining in all Her glory to the Elects. A better demonstration of Her Divine origin and scope cannot be found.
This, my friends, is the Church.
She is not even Sparta. She is infinitely stronger than that.
Not Wuerl, nor McCarrick, nor the Evil Clown, nor all the other bastards can ever be what defines Her. Actually, we look at the devastation brought on the Church by those and countless other evil men, and we still all know that the Church will survive them as She has survived everything else; and we are lost in wonder, amazed at Her strength and magnificence, still shining below the thick strata of homopaedo mud.
The glorious churches you see everywhere in Rome are not there to state that the Church will never have McCarricks and Bergoglios among Her clergy. They are there to scream that She will survive all of them, that She will sweep them aside and shine on, as glorious and magnificent as ever; as the Bride of Christ no bastard will ever be able to destroy, though the Lord may allow them to sully and scratch her.
If you don’t understand this of the Church, you have understood nothing. If you understand this, no McCarrick will ever make you doubt Her.
Shine on, Holy Mother Church! We know you are as beautiful as ever, as strong and as glorious as your thousand churches, as solemn as your Masses, and that you will always remain so.
Wuerl and Co. make me think of vagrants shitting on a huge, beautiful monument.
Yes, what they do is disgusting, dirty and stinky.
But their shit does not really change anything permanent in the beauty and greatness of the monument, and in a Divinely Instituted one at that.
This here is truly shocking even for FrancisChurch.
Let this sink in: two homosexual priests from the diocese of Cardinal Cupich feel so protected and safe with a homo-abiding Cardinal as their Ordinary that they forget all sense of I do not say decency (they clearly had none before) but even prudence.
Therefore, and certainly in a sort of uberperverted behaviour going beyond even the sodomitical habit, they park their car in a busy street in Palm Beach, near a children’s playground, and start to perform oral sex in a car without tinted glass.
It is not only the disgrace of sodomitical priests at play here. There is so much more. There is a clear sense of expected impunity; there is an obvious desire not only for sodomitical sex but for a public one, and – these two here being what they are – the additional kick they likely got from being near children also came into play.
It does not end there, either. The police was called and they were so engaged in their “public performance” that they did not even notice the officers, who had to tap on the window to make the two aware of their presence.
Who knows what goes on in the head of these people. Obviously dressed in civilian clothes (you see, we do not care for formalities much these days…) they possibly thought that the police would have just ordered them to go away; or perhaps their homo addiction is so strong that they just did not care about the consequences. However, I cannot avoid thinking that people who do such things on a public street do so because they are accustomed to an extremely high degree of impunity for homosexual behaviour in their own diocese. Even homo priests don’t get up in the morning and decide to do such things. Methinks, it takes a long time of impunity and of boundaries pushed further and further, with the ordinary turning a blind eye to all sort of things.
These are men with consecrated hands, who can serve Mass and stay near children. The mind boggles.
Cardinal Cupich has taken (no doubt, only because forced by the publicity) some disciplinary measure, albeit the defrocking of the two does not seem to be in the cards for now.
Still, the Cardinal can’t be allowed to get away with so little. It is obvious that his attitude towards homosexuality is directly linked to the behaviour of his priests; priests who feel that their sodomitical behaviour is covered up and, if not positively encouraged, certainly not condemned by their own Bishop.

We must live in the Age of Francis.
