|If the shepherds won't defend the flock,|
the laity must! Mamma bears rising!
Do they like to express their creativity by embracing every "progressive" and popular perversity inflicted on souls by the world, the flesh, and the devil? There are certainly many among the ranks of the clergy who do, sad to say.
Well, today I'm going to give you a heads up on how to recognize bad clerics.
First principle: Just because a man is wearing a roman collar or a pectoral cross doesn't mean he's telling you the truth or that he serves the Lord Jesus Christ! You need to know the faith and determine whether a "shepherd" keeps it and urges the flock to keep it!
Second principle: There are moral teachings that define the integrity of a person who calls himself a man of God. If he promotes intrinsic moral evils like abortion, contraception, or euthanasia, while proclaiming to follow Christ, he's a liar. (That same principle applies to all Catholics.) You can't trust anything he says. even when his forked tongue proclaims something that's true, because he will use the truth to advance the lie.
Third principle: There are teachings of the Church defined as infallible. Among those are the fact that women cannot be ordained as priestesses and that contraception, same sex activity, and abortion are ALWAYS immoral. If a group is promoting the lie of women's ordination or sexual immorality, it is a group working for the father of lies.
|A roman collar, pectoral cross, or even papal white don't identify a man of God.|
Do they proclaim Christ's truth or do they serve the father of lies?
Fourth principle: Moral relativism is a tool of the devil. Whenever you hear someone proclaiming situational ethics, you are being lied to. Yes, there are gray areas; but they never involve an intrinsic moral issue. Anyone who acts like Pontius Pilate when you speak about the truth or proclaims that it all just depends, is a liar!And now let's take a look at some of the liars who wear roman collars (although often they don't bother as if they are ashamed of signs of the priesthood) and pectoral crosses.
Dissident priest group backed by prominent bishops demands Catholic priestesses
The Association of US Catholic Priests is a group of dissenting priests committed to remaking the Catholic Church according to the dictates of the evil one. AUSCP is affiliated with a number of heretical groups that promote sexual immorality and other heretical positions. Here are some bad bishops the Lepanto Institute identifies who are connected to this dissident group:
This year, Cardinal Blase Cupich is giving the AUSCP's keynote address and Abp. Robert Carlson of St. Louis, MO is celebrating the AUSCP's Mass on Wednesday. Currently, Abp. John Wester serves as the AUSCP's episcopal moderator to the USCCB, Bp. John Stowe is an active member, and Abp. Wilton Gregory, Bp. Gregory Hartmeyer and Bp. Robert McElroy have all participated in AUSCP events. Given what we are about to reveal, these prelates must immediately condemn the AUSCP in order to avoid being actively involved in what is clearly a declaration of heresy.

Every bishop has an obligation to instruct his priests to avoid the AUSCP and other groups like it. If they don't, they are part of the problem. Pray for bishops and priests, but don't let them off the hook. If the hierarchy won't exercise diligence in protecting the flock, the laity must. Faithful laity need to make ourselves as much a thorn in the sides of the bishops as the dissenters have for decades. Then they'll have to choose -- in the case of women it will be between the harpies or the mother bears! Who would they rather fight with? Let's make our voices as firm (although loving) as the raging feminists have.
