The Pope would like us to apologize? Why, yes, I am very happy to take the opportunity to do so.
I apologize for Fr. James Martin, SJ, and ilk who have spent a lifetime trying to advance the liberal agenda, which is the antithesis of Truth. I apologize, especially to the homosexual community, that Fr. Martin has actively sought to drive a wedge between you and the Catholic Church. I’m sorry that he’s tried so vehemently to get you to believe that Catholic Church has anything but your salvation in mind. I’m sorry that he’s actively tried to undermine your salvation by twisting the truth.
I apologize for archbishops like Blase Cupich. He has done much of the same to homosexuals. I also apologize to the babies who weren’t saved because he shunned pro-life efforts whenever he got the opportunity. Oh, I also apologize to those whom Archbishop Cupich has tried to actively shame for protecting themselves with a mean old gun. I’m really sorry to any of those who have actually used a gun in self-defense, too. I’m pretty sure that Archbishop Cupich considers you an unfortunate, overwhelming statistic.
I apologize for the Bishop McElroys of the Church for, really, anytime they open their mouths. I mean, really, at least Martin, Cupich, and Reese try to be sly. Bishop McElroy must have missed “Subtle Dissent 101” in seminary. Sadly, we have to read pieces like this ten times to determine if they are satire or not: http://www.sandiegoreader.com/news/2016/apr/23/sdqt-bishop-mcelroy-addresses-usd-drag-show/
Believe it or not, that was satire, so no angry posts on this parody. There’s plenty of reality about which to rant.
I apologize for all of those bishops who didn’t bother to teach you the Faith, who didn’t give you a vision of what life would be if you embraced your crosses and rejected temptation, and who left you to your own devices to build your own “truth” which is contra to THE TRUTH and a twisting of reality. These bishops strove for fame and likeability over your salvation.
To women, I’m totally sorry that bishops like Cupich and McElroy have marginalized your souls in their grand seamless garment plan. They couldn’t possibly put birth control and abortion ahead of war or the death penalty. Nooooooo! They have to be given completely equal treatment or not spoken of at all, or in reality, swept to the side in lieu of these issues so the spotlight could be totally on them and their overall “I heart peace!” agendas. They never stopped once to think that if violence in the womb isn’t condemned, the rest of their agenda was a pipe dream.
So, while these members of the clergy were laying down in front of weapons of war, society was waging a war on us women, and we lost. We killed our children, gave ourselves cancer, strokes and mental problems. We became hoodwinked into believing we weren’t becoming totally objectified by all of society, all while some bishops pretty much told us not to look because, well, we were killing death row inmates and waging wars. I haven’t even mentioned porn, which stems from the devaluation of all life. So, to you and my daughters, I totally apologize for these wimpy clergy who give little thought to women.
To the poor, I’m sorry that you became yet another casualty of the liberal agenda while we were being told by our liberal shepherds that most of what the Church tells us is totally subjective and that the lives of the innocent unborn are not paramount. While closing our eyes to the Truth, nobody saw you naked, homeless and alone. Many of us have no conscience because we’ve been told it’s wrong to judge. Since there are no rights and wrongs anymore, you are pretty much just another thing we’ve become blind to. Really, you just don’t make us comfortable. You’re another cross we’re going to reject and truth to which we’re going to turn a blind eye. For this, I am sorry.
To our homosexual brethren, again, I apologize for clergy who led you astray because of their own failures of chastity, humility and fortitude. Misery loves company, and they apparently wanted more company in their egocentric boat. You are the ones paying the price. Rather than teach you to embrace your particular cross and to live chastely with an eye on the ultimate prize of everlasting life, they decided to become living examples of Luke 11:11:
And which of you, if he ask his father bread, will he give him a stone? or a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent?
I guess that would be you, dear liberal bishops.
If it makes you feel at all better (and I’m sure it won’t), they’ve done the same thing to the rest of us for our particular crosses. “Use your internal forum!” they tell us. At least you’re not alone. I feel for you deeply. So many of us are trying to be your companions, your support, and your encouragement to live as Christ calls us to live, but we’re thwarted every turn by some of the clergy. They’re being used by Satan to whisper in your ear (if whispering was using bullhorn), “They’re judging you! They hate you! They’re saying you’re not worthy!” which is totally and utterly the opposite of what’s going on with those of us not in the Westboro Baptist club. They’re spending all of their time pitting us against each other. They’re using us as pawns in their own narcissistic plans.
You know, tragedies like the massacre in Orlando have a way of bringing people together, despite Satan’s best efforts. The complete liberal, Bill Maher, while still possessing a flawed view, caught onto this a long time ago, and it seems that homosexuals are finally starting to embrace it, too. They have made the realization that no matter what they’ve been told, Christianity is not their problem. It’s the ugliness and hatefulness of Islam (and no, not all Muslims embrace that ugly side.) Christians may disagree with the homosexual lifestyle and support traditional marriage, but it’s rather hard to deny that we believe ALL life is sacred. While I am not a Trump supporter in any manner, and I don’t support the spirit of revenge, I think this video shows a turning point in the understanding of radical Islam: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-2IoTQlDh9U I’m hoping that this realization drowns out the Cupiches, McElroys and Lynches of our Church who seek to draw division among us in our time of crisis, and Archbishop Wenski is starting the flood when he really let Bishop Lynch have it here: https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/miami-archbishop-rebukes-bishop-lynchs-claim-catholics-share-blame-for-orla While McElroy and club whine about not using the term “LGBT”, I’m seeing tweets like this:
National security trumps gay marriage. Sorry. But you can’t get married if you’re DEAD.
Despite the attempts of Bishops Cupich, McElroy, and Lynch, I’m hoping this crack in the door, the mere realization that Christians don’t want to kill homosexuals, might lead to more experiences like this man who came to the realization that he was loved:
Lastly, I’m sorry to the faithful clergy. Whenever you take two steps forward in bringing souls to Truth, you are immediately tackled by the liberal clergy and sometimes you actually lose yardage. We’re praying you pump that spiritual iron and plow right through the liberal agenda.
Enough of an apology for you?!
