Archbishop lost in woods. - Botero
What are right wing Catholics?
Are there left wing Catholics?
Middle of the road Catholics?
Is Catholicism a political system?
Was everyone happy with former Popes?
I have a lot of respect for Archbishop Chaput. But why would he speak this way about Catholics?
During an interview in Rio de Janeiro on Tuesday, for instance, Chaput bluntly stated:
WTH?[T]hat members of the right wing of the Catholic church "generally have not been really happy" with some aspects of Francis' early months and said the pope will have to find a way "to care for them, too." - NCR
I'm so not fond of politicians and political terms when it comes to the Faith. What does that mean, right wing of the Church?
Is the rest of the Church something else? Is there a liberal wing that has it's own set of rules and teachings and liturgy. What is Chaput really saying?
Are bishops called to segregate and politicize the Body of Christ? Are some Catholics labeled, and then so easily dismissed that they are neglected? That there needs to be a special way 'to care for them too'?
I don't get this kind of bishop-speak? Like Dolan saying, "We have to do more for gay Catholics." What the hell are all of these political designations doing to the Body of Christ?
Bishops should not do interviews.
Bishops should avoid photo-ops.
Bishops should stop labeling people.
Bishops should tend their flocks.
