Contraception + Bishops = Fail: Vortex

Michael Voris hits it out of the park…AGAIN. Watch the entire Vortex episode below, or go here to watch it at the RealCatholicTV website, where you can also become a premium subscriber.

Here are some critical excerpts from the script:

Almost nowhere – save an individual homily here or there – have we heard an open public blasting against CONTRACEPTION ITSELF on the part of United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.

Sure, there have been letters and statements and articles and speeches about First Amendment rights being trampled and religious liberty being crushed underfoot and all that.  But…not a word on the evil of contraception itself. And this continuing ignoring of THAT is worrisome to say the least…

Because at the end of the day, what matters is whether a soul is saved or damned…

[Here, he quotes from an article written by a young, self-described-Catholic woman who begins with this assertion:

I have been a Catholic my whole life. Baptized as a baby and confirmed in the seventh grade, I attended weekly catechism classes and received a Jesuit education. Never once did the opinion of the church on a person's use of contraceptives surface.

She wholeheartedly embraces contraception, and freely admits to having used “birth control, condoms, and emergency contraception”.]

Well done, leaders. Well done. For decades, including up to this very moment, you have sought to usher in some new understanding of the Faith. You continue to call it PASTORAL.

You have allowed and still allow thousands of dissidents and heretics to run wild on so-called "Catholic” catholic campuses from sea to shining sea.

You allow and sometimes welcome a dizzying array of dissidents on the Catholic speaking circuit to come speak at hundreds of diocesan conferences and lecture halls.

You have turned a blind eye to the corrosive effects of all this on the faith of two – and now going on three – generations, but you will fight and oppose like mad practically any expression of Orthodoxy that dare raise its ugly head.

And as the sun is setting over an entire globe, you fight a law and NOT the evil at the heart of the law that has taken up home among the very souls your office gives you charge over.

  1. I like the cartoon about NO as a form of birth control; however, perhaps you are unaware that the website (www.bible.ca) URL in the upper right of the cartoon frame leads to a site that is blatantly anti-Roman Catholic. Check out: http://www.bible.ca/catholic.htm
    Perhaps the URL could be edited out.


Please be courteous and concise.
