- Cuomo brushes off criticism of New York abortion law: ‘I’m not here to legislate religion’
- Why taking on the church may not hurt Cuomo with Catholic voters
- Franklin Graham to Catholics: Excommunicate Cuomo
Last weekend, I mentioned that the Governor of New York State, Roman Catholic, Andrew Cuomo (photo left), pushed a new law through the state legislature which allows an abortion right up to the pre-born infant’s delivery date. Reaction from conservative Catholics has been swift, with many calling for the church’s clerics to excommunicate Cuomo, which will NEVER happen. Cuomo retaliated by suggesting the Catholic clergy were hardly in a position to school him on morality as he pointed to the RCC’s longstanding opposition to liberalizing recourse for victims of childhood sexual abuse. Unsurprisingly, 59% of NY Catholics polled supported the new abortion law. I see that Christian nationalist, Franklin Graham, has called upon his “good friend,” Roman Catholic cardinal, Timothy Dolan (photo right) of New York, to excommunicate the governor. Graham should be putting his energy into evangelizing Catholics, but he’s following in his father’s footsteps in betraying the Gospel through ecumenism.
- Cardinal reiterates support for ‘Amoris Laetitia’
- Cardinal Kasper: ‘A forced resignation of Pope Francis would be invalid’
The predatory priests and cover-up scandal tsunami has dominated Catholic news headlines since last June, but pope Francis’ advancement of his progressive agenda continues unabated. Interesting to read that there’s a movement afoot calling for Francis to resign. That’s obviously more bluster than substance. When will conservative Catholics demonstrate the courage of their convictions and break away from Francis and his progressive allies?
- Christian unity advancing despite ‘pockets of mutual rejection,’ Vatican official says
- “Who cares?” if Anglicans become Catholic says the Archbishop of Canterbury
The relentless regathering of the Protestant “separated brethren” is a constant priority for the Vatican. The statement by the archbishop of Canterbury highlights another reason why Anglicanism/Episcopalism as a “Protestant” denomination is completely apostate and a whited sepulcher.
Since 2002, when the Boston Globe blew the lid off the RCC’s predatory priests and cover-up scandal, the church’s hierarchy has had more than ample opportunity to comprehensively address the grievous problem, but has made no progress. That is not surprising because, as headlines continue to show, the prelates themselves are connected directly to the wrongdoing. In reaction to the “Summer of 2018” scandal tsunami, Francis called for this upcoming February 21-24 Vatican summit of all the church’s bishops, but is cautioning that the problem of abuse is still unlikely to be resolved. Actually, the problem will never be resolved because Catholic seminaries, with their rule of mandatory celibacy, both attract and foster deviancy.
I couple of weekend roundups ago, I referenced a local news report that identified seven Jesuit priests who taught at the “prestigious” McQuaid Jesuit High School over the years as predatory sexual abusers. I suggested that the seven were probably only the tip of the iceberg. The story above that was published this past Thursday proves me right.
After the serious news this weekend, we all need some (very) far-fetched joviality!
