Fishwrap (aka National Schismatic Reporter) has yet another attack piece against the important collection to be taken up this weekend for the Archdiocese for Military Services.
In other words they are attacking Catholic chaplains.
In the latest divisive hate piece Fishwrap has this suggestion:
Outside the clergy, a small, lay-led online effort seeks to offer Catholics opposed to the collection an alternative when the basket makes its way through the pews.
Catholics Against Militarism has made available on its website downloadable cards for Catholics opposed to the collection “to put in the collection basket instead of money, just to make their voices heard,” member Ellen Finnigan said.
The cards, in part, read: “A nationwide collection for AMS sends a message to American Catholics that the Catholic Church condones America’s current military activity and post-9-11 wars. … Church is no place to glorify the ideals of the professional military class, which run contrary to most, if not all, Christian beliefs and teachings, including the Christian Just War theory. Today, in a spirit of peace, I offer my dissent.”
Fishwrap upbraids those who create “divisiveness” or who use sharp rhetoric.
And yet here is Fishwrap attacking an established, recognized ministry to well over 1 million lay people, some of whom are children, some of whom are suffering in horrible life-threatening circumstances. Some of them are poor, they work for almost nothing.
How ’bout this. There is special collection for nuns every year.
Do they deserve a handout after all the strife and division some of them create in the Church?
How about I create a card you can download and print to offer your disgust about the LCWR when it is time to take up a collection for women religious?
“A nationwide collection for women religious sends a message to American Catholics that the Catholic Church condones America’s women religious dissenting from Church teachings and causing scandal and confusion among the faithful. … Church is no place to glorify the ideals of the dissenting nuns, such as those of the LCWR and CHA, which run contrary to most, if not all, Christian beliefs and teachings, including just about everything in the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Today, in a spirit of peace, I offer my dissent.”
Hey! I recognize a good idea when I see it. Liberals are the experts at division. This is a Leftist idea and tactic.
I don’t see the USCCB rushing to denounce the tactic. The Left gets away with this garbage all the time. Not this time. Let’s start a card campaign, too!
Look. For those of you in Columbia Heights, I am making a point about how the Left works. I don’t really want to start a campaign against the sisters. But the LEFT thinks this is a great idea: attack Catholic chaplains and then create division in parish churches by smearing the Military Archdiocese as warmongers. I am kidding. They are serious.
If this isn’t divisive, what is?
If we wanted to, we could play the game, too.
Remember that movie WarGames?
Joshua: Shall we play a game?
David Lightman: [typing] Love to. How about Global Thermonuclear War?
Joshua: Wouldn’t you prefer a nice game of chess?
David Lightman: [typing] Later. Let’s play Global Thermonuclear War.
Whom shall we nuke next? How ’bout KANSAS CITY!
