Most of what Michael Sean Winters posts at Fishwrap (aka National Schismatic Reporter) gets my yawn, but it’s Saturday and I have three free minutes. HERE
If this isn’t a case of a pot saying “You’re black!” to the kettle, I don’t know what one would be.
People might instantly focus on MSW’s call for “niceness”. People should be “nice”. I guess that means schilling only for the Left.
And they are soooo good at being nice over at NSR, aren’t they? Leaving aside the “nice” people in Fishwrap’s combox, MSW himself perpetually calls people venomous (must read for a chuckle) and yahoos (in which he oozes “niceness”) and the like. But I digress.
MSW criticizes some cardinals for fundraising for certain causes:
I would like to hear Cardinal Burke, Archbishop Vigneron and Bishop Paprocki use their next fundraising gala to reiterate the Blessed Mother’s words in the Magnificat about the rich being sent away empty.
Could we look up MSW’s sanctimonious comments aimed at his own publication when Conrad Hilton gave the Fishwrap $2.3 million?
I guess philanthropy to the Left excuses wealth.
And where does MSW get his history? What does MSW know about St. John Paul or Pope Benedict NOT applying can. 915? What about Card. Ratzinger’s 2004 letter to Card. McCarrick, that McCarrick didn’t bother to send around to the other bishops, and then, indeed, edited? Ratzinger cited can. 915 in that… I can’t remember… is that the paragraph that McCarrick cut out? I thought that, under John Paul and Benedict theologians were snuffed out like so much vermin. But, hey, I guess they are now nice Popes.
As opposed to mean-old Francis.
Former-Father Greg Reynolds is still excommunicated.
