    Even though the high school named for him was my arch-rival in football, we really should remember the model of the great Archbishop Joseph Rummel (1876-1964), who hesitated to do it because he feared for the souls of the excommunicates but ultimately knew he had no choice. Sometimes people will learn in no other way, and permission causes scandal and confusion among everyone else.

    This. 1 million times this.

    That is all.

    Seems like we may be alittle bit (40 years) too late.
    I do not know maybe it is just me, but contracaeption is now fine, so is abortion, and so is leaving the catholic church for a protestant church, if I am to follow what is being done and not what is being said.

  5. BillyHW says:

    If excommunication is really an act of charity, like we’re supposed to believe, then we should do it more often.

    I concur.

  9. The USCCB doesn’t have the backbone to do what is right, especially in this situation, which is of their own making. Maybe if they stopped acting like the religious arm of the DNC and actually did their jobs vis a vis Church teaching, then maybe. But they will cave as usual and no one will be held accountable, except the laity who believe

    Can not the bishops see that if they compromise on this issue, religion is dead in America? Humanae Vitae was prophetic as to the decline of civilization in that it stated that the government would take control over Divine Law, and that the allowance would “give into the hands of public authorities the power to intervene in the most personal and intimate responsibility of husband and wife.”
    We had years to get ready for tyranny.

    If they cave in, next thing you know the o administration will demand same sex “marriages” in the Church.
