Vortex: Purification of the Church Needed ASAP
I’m happy to let Michael Voris do the talking today...but you'll have to go here to listen/watch today's Vortex episode.
some a lot of excerpts from the script for those who would rather read than listen. But I haven't reproduced the whole script here, and it is
well worth watching the entire 6-minute video (as well as subscribing).
…Look at these numbers from the Public Religion Research Institute. A majority of Catholics – get this – actually SUPPORT Obama on this one over and above the bishops. In fact, the percentage of support among Catholics for Obama’s free birth control for everybody plan is actually greater than among the general population of Americans…Obama has tested the waters and found that the support for the bishops among the overall Catholic population really is as weak as everyone has long suspected.
What a dilemma for the US bishops. After squandering their moral authority for the past 40 plus years by lying in bed with the party of death they are now paying the price. It was any – most in fact – of the bishops themselves who have stayed deathly silent on the issue of contraception, so much so that it is nearly impossible to turn up one single document or letter or press release from the National Headquarters where that is the main topic…
… What we see unfolding before us is the consequence of 40 plus years of naïveté and political alliance with Caesar on the part of the American hierarchy.
…A couple of months ago, [the bishops] re-released the pathetic document Faithful Citizenship – a document that thankfully almost no Catholics know about or pay attention to if they do. In it, the garble of language and ambiguous competing principles essentially says nothing and claims nothing as being an absolute disqualifier for holding public office.
Killing Children in the womb and supporting laws that allow this barbarism IS a
disqualifier – automatically and undeniably. Yet nowhere is this clearly stated in the document. Practically all Democrats in office support this murder and yet nothing is really said about them... much less DONE about them.
The National Bishops’ office publishes watered down ambiguous pamphlets about voting for who your conscience says you should vote for, but never gets down to the nuts and bolts about how a good conscience should be formed.
Here’s what needs to happen and the example is Blessed Pope John Paul II Himself. An apology: a great big nationally televised, much publicized apology.
Hell itself has been allowed to run rampant in the Church for the past half century. The bishops who have been complicit in this through their silence need to stand up and
1. ADMIT their complicity.
2. CONFESS, for all the Catholic world to hear, that they have been wrong in not exercising their authority in charity as strong men do.
3. They need to publically ACKNOWLEDGE the grave disaster that they have allowed to be rained down on the Church – down to the loss of hundreds of millions of souls from the Faith... AND IT IS hundreds of millions of souls over all these years.
4. And when all of this has been publically confessed, they must set about to make AMENDS in very tangible practical ways. Dissident theologians must be summarily fired. Catholic institutions that operate in the name of the Church yet defy Her infallible teachings must finally be cast off once and for all. Chanceries must be cleared of professional Catholics. Priests and religious that do not live moral faithful lives must be brushed aside.
In short, a purification of the Church must begin and begin in earnest.
