Wining and dining with the enemies of Christ; allowing dissidents virtual free reign; clamping down on faithful Catholics; allowing untold abuses at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass; supporting and helping to stay in power a party dedicated to the Culture of Death; all in the name of some prudential policy judgments that have proven absolutely ineffective in their stated goals of fighting poverty.
Occasionally, we hear a nice Catholic-sounding speech from a prelate here or there. We see an interview in which past sins are admitted, but nothing is suggested or done to fix the problems resulting from those sins. Instead what we see are campaigns designed to whip up the faithful to support an American constitutional principle while the underlying intrinsic moral evil is completely ignored. It’s as if the concern is more jurisprudence than the salvation of souls.
