Pop over the Fr. Longenecker’s place and read his post: “All Are Welcome”
He rips the skin from the faux calls for diversity and multiculturalism and, especially, “gay” hollering we are force to hear so much.
I’m reminded of a gay activist who was interviewed about the church. He was yelling that he wanted the church to be more inclusive, then the interviewer said, “So if you felt the church was more inclusive which church would you attend every Sunday?”
The guy looked at the interviewer like he was a martian, “Not me. I’m not really a Christian.”
Correct. It seems the liberals who are unlocking the doors to empty churches are the ones crying out, “All are welcome!” but the churches aren’t empty because people are unwelcome, but because the people simply don’t want to go to that kind of church.
The churches that are full, on the other hand, are the ones that actually preach the Christian gospel which welcome everyone, but welcomes them to something called the Christian faith.
Without a full blooded, historic Catholic faith which preaches the need for repentance and seeking the face of the Lord for eternal salvation what are you welcoming people to? A luncheon club where they sing hymns and carry banners with trite slogans? A soup kitchen and shower facility where they hold Bible studies? A rehab center where they find their inner goddess? People aren’t dumb. They’ll soon ask, “Why bother with all that religious-spiritual stuff? We can do soup kitchens, rehab centers and shower facilities without all those dreary hymns, bad Christian pop music and dull homilies delivered by a fat, middle class half educated minister.
Bottom line, when it comes to libs, “All are welcome”… TO WHAT, exactly?
