Well, the truth is out. The New York Archidiocese is paying for abortion, contaception, and sterilization through some union contracts. And in Detroit Catholic hospitals are dispensing contraceptives. Undoubtedly, they are not isolated cases.
Shocked? Disillusioned? Not me. I have no illusions left and we've seen it too many times!
No wonder Cardinal Dolan welcomed Obama to dinner. They are moral twins. Or maybe clones is a better term since so many of the bishops are members of the club, i.e., hypocrites and liars. How are the laity supposed to respect our "shepherds" when they habitually tell us one thing and do another? When will we see the bishops walk the walk instead of talking the talk with forked tongues?
Pray for the bishops. I'm afraid maybe we get the leaders we deserve because we haven't fought (or prayed) hard enough! But God help us! As they say, with friends like this who needs enemies?
