Slithery misdirection from the National Sodomitical Reporter: Bishops who avoid scandal commit scandal

The National Sodomitical Reporter (aka Fishwrap) is at it again with a particularly dreadful defense of sodomy.

IMPORTANT – READ THIS: What is the appeal to “build a bridge” really about?

I’ve argued here that the homosexualist agenda has been patiently engaged for a long time and is still reaching for that brass ring.

Kudos to InterVarsity Christian Fellowship

Given the fecklessness of some of our Catholic leaders, given the meaningless and nation-endangering “lines in the sand” drawn by the Obama administration, this is refreshing, although from a non-Catholic source.

What follows should make EVERY CATHOLIC angry.  There is no left or right or anything else in this.  If you are Catholic, this should make you angry.  If you read Patheos, or Rorate, or Aletheia you should be angry and, frankly, alarmed.

Another papal trip, another papal presser, another papal kerfuffle

The usual unusual suspects are over the moon that Pope Francis made comments about “gays” (I detest the twisting of that once fine word) where else but on an airplane.  Other suspects are shredding their garments.
