Editor's note: Posting on FB is easier than posting to the blog. I can just link to an article or share another post and add a brief comment or two. On Blogger I have more to format. Anyway - that's probably why I haven't been blogging as much.
Today's controversy centers around Archbishop Paglia once again. Even Janet Smith's mouth dropped over the LifeSite article which comes close to accusing the Archbishop of heresy. These people are biased against Paglia (and of course Pope Francis) and LifeSite feeds into that bias.
They are apparently scandalized by the following remarks which LifeSite suggests is at variance with Catholic teaching:
According to Paglia, there is only a “domestic church” through unity with other families within the Church.
“You are a domestic church by uniting yourself to other families,” said Paglia, who added that the family shouldn’t have “one center,” and “for this purpose, it’s better to have two centers: the parish and the family.”
“This is of decisive importance for me,” said Paglia. “For example, what do you do with a believer who is alone? Is he excluded? No, he’s not excluded,” because he has the “family of Sunday.”“Those who aren’t married? My family isn’t that of my mother and father . . . the true family is the family of the Church. Those among the elderly who are alone, they cannot remain alone in our houses. On Sunday they have to come to the Church, to the Mass of the community,” he continued. - LifeSite
To insure the character assassination is complete, the author concludes the article by noting the 'homosexual' influence in the mural commissioned for his diocese.
While he was archbishop of the Italian diocese of Terni-Narni-Amelia, Paglia oversaw the creation of an “erotic” mural for his cathedral church that former members of the Pontifical Academy for Life called “blasphemous,” and even “demonic.” - LF
Cardinal Burke's words certainly could be better applied to LifeSiteNews as well: They're part of the problem when it comes to “increasing the confusion” on the “most fundamental and important issues.”
