And questions wondering if Cardinal Bernadin was really a filthy homosexual?
Seriously? I have comment moderation on just in time this week, because the wing-nutz are out swinging. It's making me crazy too.
Last week I got an email about Cardinal Bernadin being a homosexual and head of a lavender conspiracy. These stories keep circulating, so they must be true, right? I don't know what Bernadin was - I never paid much attention to bishops before I started blogging. Never had much time for them - wasn't ever impressed by them. However, I have to ask, did the Church officially condemn Bernadin as a bad man? He's dead now, and I've heard people praising him for having forgiven a false accuser. The man is dead.
We know there were many SSA priests from back then and there remain many today as well. So one must ask: Does the Church enforce its rules? Has it ever? Is every archbishop and bishop part of a lavender mafia because they continue to admit SSA men to the priesthood? Really Fr. Sirico?
Likewise, is Cardinal Schönborn a pornographer/homosexual? That's what at least one blogger claims, frequently calling him out as the "homo-porn Cardinal Christoph Schönborn". Does the Pope call him that? Is there a Vatican commission studying the allegations? Why is he still a prince of the Church in that case?
St. John's Abbey in Collegeville.
Yep - it once had the reputation of being a hotbed of homosexual behavior and I too have written about the gay retreats that have been scheduled there. But if it continues to be so bad - that it is really more of a clearing house of all things gay and corrupt and exploitative of donors, alumni, students and Church, why isn't the place under interdict or closed down? Why do bloggers keep blogging so-called exposes with impunity? Obviously Collegeville is aware information is being published and circulated.
I rarely check stats but did so today because I've limited comments over the past few days and wanted to see how it affects readership. Anyway - that was why I checked and how I noticed some one from the abbey is reading my blog. No surprise - posts come up in search engines. So. I know they know, and they know I know and we know who the other bloggers are, spreading the other stories.
Why? How? How does this stuff keep repeating. It seems to be a cyclical thing.
It's like the Barbara Marx Hubbard speaking engagement at the LCWR conference, which everyone seems to enjoy discussing and no one takes seriously. Even Archbishop Sartain, in charge of the doctrinal assessment, congratulated them on a job well done after the event concluded.
Confused? Me too. It's a WTF world.
This just in: From today's com box queue:
From what I can see, he doesn't donate any of that money back to the Catholic church. When I see the UPS man drop off (approx 5 boxes per day) to his house, he doesn't seem to remove the item from Amazon. For instance, receiving 3 large screen TV's and the item remained on his wish list for several more months. - Anonymous
